Old listing and new listing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I got old company listing:
https://goo.gl/maps/78iLg7HdZ292

and new one with reviews:
https://goo.gl/maps/dt3DxuZUQXQ2

How I can remove old one and be able to see new listing if I search for AZ Siding Vancouver or Siding Vancouver?

I can't even edit information about newer listing :(

Hi @Andrey Z

 

You can bring up the listing you don't want in Maps, then suggest an edit and mark it as Duplicate.

As an extra tip, I recommend you mark the newer listing as the dupe so the reviews etc go onto the older listing.

Neither one is appropriate.  You need to use your actual location, not a UPS Store.  Both listing need to be deleted from the map since they are not actual places.

 

You can set up a listing at your actual place of business.  If that's your home office then use that address; when setting the feature up you will be asked specific questions that include whether you are a service area business (you are) and whether people come to your location they don't); which will then hide your address from the public.  When setting up your service area you can choose specific postal codes; it does not have to be centred around your home.  Finally, your company name should only be AZ Siding; keyword stuffing the name field is not permitted.

Hi @Flash

Thank you for catching the UPS store address!  Great detective work.

@Andrey Z - Flash is 100% right - please fix the address and name to be compliant with Google's guidelines.
