What do I do if my local competitor changed his name on google and used my name in his local listing?

Hi @Menachem 

If he is using a name on his GMB listing that is different from the real one that he does business under, you can go to his GMB listing and click on the "Suggest an edit" link and change the name back to the "correct" name, such as the one shown on his website.

 

Then watch his GMB listing for a few days and see whether your edit is accepted and put into place. If it is not, then come back here to the forum and post a follow reply to this thread, with the details like the link to your GMB listing and his.

 

Does that help?
