How coincidental. I just posted one warning about trying to use PO Boxes instead of street addresses. Next, I was going to write about the problem of having more than one NAP. Google doesn’t know which business is the legitimate occupier of the land at that street address, so it tends to just reject your NAP and make your listing disappear. They’re not sure if you’re the scammer or not. Or, you could be a competitor trying to put the business at that location out of business. Happens that way a lot.
Let me doublecheck this first, but I think it may have been advisable for you to first verify the listing with the wrong address, go inside, and delete the listing entirely. The same would be true if there were a listing for your address that belonged to a previous business no longer there.
Then, you would create and verify a new listing with your correct business NAP — name, address (street address only), and phone number. They’ll probably make you get verification by mail, which can take a long time. The good news is that eventually Google will spider you again and realize you are now the rightful owner of your NAP and the one and only business located at that precise street address.
Just make sure you write your NAP the exact same way every time. If you write it as “Suite 123″, then never abbreviate. Also, search the internet for any old or scamming businesses who might have used that address in the past, as well as making sure that every single online citation with your NAP appears the same. One NAP for your business — now and forever, as long as you’re at that address.
A medical prospect last year had 15 different addresses, phone numbers, business names floating around the internet. That wa a nightmare worst case scenario.
For you, I recommend scouring the internet for your NAP first, just to make sure. Then try what I said. Sorry, but you could be in a waiting game now.
