Duplicate LSA listings, and franchises showing two locations in LSA's


Mar 14, 2019
Google verification for LSA's not up to standards. In my area the LSA's are showing duplicate listings, letting franchises have more then one listing in the same area or zip code, and letting businesses ran out of apartments become verified as well as businesses that have a phone and mailing address at the location but not actual staff working. I thought this was exactly what the LSA's were going to prevent. Any one have the same issue or know how get action on this. All my complaints have failed.

LSA listings are based on GMB listings, so it's possible a franchise or business with 2 locations could show up in a given area; I've seen it in the past, but haven't specifically looked for that any time recently. Do you have any examples you can show?

I imagine if you used the redressal form to remove a business using a virtual office, for example, it would affect their LSA.
