    Unhappy Why does Google keep messing with my Places page?

    Once a month I get a call from google from a person with a indian accent. They ask me about my listing and then an hour later the listing has been changed in some way. Either the website is removed, phone removed, category removed or name changed back my old business name.

    Has this happened to you?
    Why do they do this?

    They are trying to maintain data integrity.

    If anything looks suspicious and does not add up or if other 3rd party data leads them to think your listing is wrong then they will correct it.

    Thanks Linda, that makes sense.
    Since the listing is for a business that changed it's name, when do you think that will stop altering the listing?

    Re: Why does Google keep messing with my Places page?

    Have you cleaned up all your citations including government licenses, yellow page listings, etc? Because if they keep seeing the old name it could continue to cause issues.

    I don't remember/know what the name was before, but if by chance the other name was long standing and sounded just like a regular business name and the new one is a total KW name, that would maybe look suspicious to them too.
