Remove or report duplicate businesses from bulk uploads
If you add a location that's already been verified in your Business Profile, Google marks it as a "Duplicate location" in your account. The duplicate location is not shown in Google Maps.
If "Access needed" is listed on a location, someone else previously verified it. Request ownership of that Business Profile if you're authorized to manage it.
Important: Once a location is removed, it can't be recovered. Update the location you want to keep with any crucial information from the location you want to remove. If the location you kept is unverified, you'll have to verify it, even if the duplicate location you removed was verified.
- On your computer, sign into Business Profile Manager.
- Go to Manage locations.
- Check the box for each location you want to remove.
- Click "Actions" Remove location.
To report a duplicate location on Google Maps:
- On your computer, open Google Maps.
- Select the location you want to report as a duplicate.
- Click Suggest an edit.
- Click Close or remove.
- Click Duplicate of another place.
- If available, choose the right location from the list.
- Click Submit.
Update your business address
Important: Do not create a new Business Profile if your business's location changes.
If your business moves, you can update the address in your Business Profile. After you update the address, you may be asked to verify it.
When you update your address, you can enter your opening date and post from the new location.
If you want to update an address but you don't own the Business Profile, you can request access from the profile's current owner.
You can also report incorrect addresses on Google Maps.
