wrong google business appearing

Hello,

 

when I google my site (usavisanow) an old, closed listing appears as my google business.

 

A google search of usavisa now should have this listing: https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS686US686&ei=tCBVWs6VJK7k_QblxqiwAw&q=marc+taylor+esq&o...

 

How can this be fixed?

 

Business: Taylor & Associates Law, PC

website: https://www.usavisanow.com/

 

Thank you

Hi John, 

 

Looking at this listing, I see that this location has not been marked as closed. Do you have access to this listing? If you do, mark it as permanently closed and it will have less visibility in your Google searches. 

 

If you do not have access, click the 'Suggest an Edit' button on the listing and report it as permanently closed. I have already done so as well. 

 

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions or need me to clarify.

 

Edit: I just got an update that my change to your former business was successful. It has now been marked as closed!

Hello John, 

 

Can you provide a link of the closed business? When I search for your business I found this listing: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Taylor+%26+Associates+Law,+PC/@40.7509713,-73.9874652,17z/data=!3m...

 

Is the closed building marked as permanently closed on Google Maps? This can help decrease visibility of the listing.

Hi Rachel,

 

If you do a search for our domain name (usavisanow) the business American Immigration Network appears. (https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=QSVVWsm0McKj_Qaswq-ABA&q=usavisanow&oq=usavisanow&gs_l=ps...)

 

The link you provided above (Taylor Associates Law PC) should appear.

American Immigration Network was our old business name and address. We wish to remove the American Immigration Network listing.

Hi Rachel,

 

I am having pretty much the exact same problem.  Every time I search for my brand "DreamQii" I get the following business result:

 

https://www.google.ca/maps/place/DQ+Robotics+Incorporated/@61.2256367,-101.7477464,7.82z/data=!4m5!3...

 

I have tried to mark the business as permanently closed and suggested edits.  No luck with the listing disappearing yet.  The issue for me is that DreamQii is not a business itself, it is a brand name owned by a larger business. Which means I cannot open up a new business listing for it, as no business with that name exists... quite the problem and we are losing traffic to it.
