    Google Local and Business Listings


    Hello All,

    Im currently trying to resolve a issue i have with a Google business place.

    The Google business page that appears in the search results in localiased searches or brand name searches had an incorrect address and number anyway i couldnt verify the page... i requested the address to be changed and Google changed the company to no longer trades from this location, but now it is removed from the localised searches and the new business places isnt tied in with our site such as if you type in the brand name it no longer appears.

    Ive setup a new one, and the citations where done before i requested the Google business page to be changed. So citations are done all clear images and describtion of 300 words etc all in there.

    How long will this take to be reassociated with our site?

    It been 2 weeks is this too early? its the first time ive had issues setting them up also.

    The old business page can still be found and claimed but just says No longer trades from this location.

    I was wondering if someone else has had a similar problem?

    Thanks in advance

    This gets super complicated but in a nutshell, if it's too big of a change, like a move or rebranding Google will sometimes mark the original as closed or relocated. That pulls it out of search, but it will still be live.

    New listings can take 6 weeks to show in search, so if it's newly verified that's part of the problem. But then it can take time to rank OR may never rank depending on how well optimized it is.

    "So citations are done all clear images and describtion of 300 words etc all in there."

    That part did not make sense to me. Citations with clear images and 300 words? What do you mean?

    I haven't got such problem.
    However, there are listing for 2-3 month duration or even for a half of the year.
    It depends if it is manually moderated, how popular it is, etc.
    So if you got listed in a good directory it should take time to be listed.
    Don't be worry! I'm sure everything will be fine!
