Need to delete old business page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, I've currently got two Google+ business pages for my one business. I need to delete the older listing but I can't get access to it because it was set up by an SEO company that I'm no longer using. Can someone please help?

 

OLD PAGE:https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/101678964381315148973/103514317601407773028

CURRENT PAGE:https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/101678964381315148973/+OperaticstringsAuViolinDuo/posts

 

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi @Bernadette B

 

You need to request ownership of the OLD page

 

Go to >> http://www.google.com/business/

The click >> Get onto Google ( Big Blue Top Right )

Enter the business name.>> Operatic Strings Violinist, Wedding Music and Wedding Entertainment

Select the Business

It will then say :

Someone else has already verified this listing

This listing has already been verified by another user. If you want to add this listing to your account, you can make a request that will be sent to the current verified user.

Request admin rights


Request the admin right >> you will need to write a message to the current "owner" of the local page

You need to go through this process. ( wait 7 days )

Now you can contact Google Business Support to regain ownership :
https://support.google.com/business/contactflow

 

Please also ask support at this stage to merge the OLD page into your Current page.

Hi Tim, Thank you for your post! I tried to follow your directions, but neither my current business nor the incorrect listing came up in the search. I couldn't select them to request admin rights because they didn't appear, and I tried different versions of spelling, etc. So confused!! Bernadette Baker

Hi @Bernadette B

 

Yep you are correct, it could be because the name violates guidelines, but not sure.

 

Please contact business support and explain that there is a duplicate, you don't have ownership and need to remove the page

But it is a verified Page, unless you are the owner you cannot delete.

 

It looks like it was hijacked from Fusion Management
