Did you know that you can update your company information that Google displays?
For example where I work the information that Google displays was for an employee specifically and his direct line. Not the proper company address and phone number, least I say that this is not ideal. I imagine that Google culls that information from several sources and pieces it all together and each employee’s number is posted on the website under their bio. So I am sure that this is were Google is getting it.
There is a way to fix this! Do a search for your business and you should see the information at the top with perhaps a Google map thumbnail along with other search results below. Under your address you will see “More Information”.
If you click on the “More Information” link, and at the bottom (Very Bottom) of that next page, there is an “Edit This Listing” link. Click it and Google walks you through asking for Address information Phone, etc…Business Type and picture with a wizard type setup. They then provide you with a 4 digit pin number, and wanted to initiate a call to the main number you listed to confirm the details you submitted. Hint * I had to give reception the pin so they could confirm it.
Google said that it could take up to 4 weeks to update it.
So there you go, it wasn’t as difficult as I imagined to update incorrect business information in Google’s database.
