"We're not showing this page because it's a duplicate of another" error message

1.) Brandography

2.) 100 West Franklin Ave. Suite #200 Minneapolis, MN 55404

3.) 612-460-0016

4.) https://plus.google.com/101256172657485832862/posts

 

I am the manager of my business's Google Plus page. Recently, we had a new startup business start using our offices with the same mailing address. I created a Google Business page for this new startup and a few days later received the error message "We're not showing this page because it's a duplicate of another." In the process, the new startup Google Business page appears with our address in search results while in search results, our business reverted back to an old Google Places account with an old address.

 

In an effort to fix this problem, I deleted the startup's Google Business account. It has been several days now and the old Google Places account with the old address is still appearing in search results for our business. I am wondering what I need to do to fix this issue to have the correct Google Business page appear alongside our business in search results? Please let me know what actions to take in order to fix this.

 

Thanks!

Sorry Samuel

 

I'm not sure why I didn't noticed this earlier.

But I found the core of your issue:

There is indeed an existent and verified duplicate of your above linked unverified business page!

It's https://maps.google.com/?cid=954456637792320999

 

Hope this helps

Hey Helmut,

Thanks for the help! That link is an old page that was created many years ago and we still have access to it. It's weird because the reviews that appear along with it were originally written on the new page.

How do we get the new page to display instead of the old? Do we have to delete the old page? If we do this, will we lose all the reviews that were written on that page?

New page= https://plus.google.com/101256172657485832862/posts
Old page= https://maps.google.com/?cid=954456637792320999

Thanks in advance!
