    Search results are much worse months after merging.

    One of our clients switched to our agency to handle his online presence earlier this year. He had two listings on Google at the time; an unclaimed one under his name and a managed one under his practice name.

    We had Google Support merge the two together, and it's now listed as:
    Olney Dental Center: Eric D. Levine, DDS

    https://www.google.com/maps?cid=16077420709826530783

    He's disappeared entirely from Google Maps searches done from our location and isn't as high as he was when using BrightLocal's tool: https://www.brightlocal.com/local-se...sults-checker/

    My boss would like to know if we should remove the doctor's name from the listing and if that would restore the search results back to the way they were.

    I appreciate any advice you can provide.

    Hi CE,

    I originally thought it was March, but I checked the records again, and I see the merge was completed on August 23rd, 2017.
