Google knows they are duplicates

But they are in my dash. They are dupes of the main 2 listings on the right side top and bottom.

When you click on "
We're not showing this page because it's a duplicate of another.
Learn more"

It asks if you own it? Which is weird because I think I do.

I click yes and then it says...

Does this mean I don't own it? Not sure how to proceed here. Thanks.
Thanks.

Hi Robin,

I can't really read those screenshots, but trust Colan's opinion on this.

There are a couple important threads about this problem in the Google Local IMPORTANT forum. Here are 2.

<a href="http://localsearchforum.catalystemarketing.com/google-local-important/15170-warning-email-re-google-places-duplicate-listings.html">Warning Email re Google Places Duplicate Listings</a>

<a href="http://localsearchforum.catalystemarketing.com/google-local-important/13765-google-attempting-rectify-dual-claimed-local-listing.html">Google Attempting to Rectify Dual Claimed Local Listing Problems w Email Warnings</a>

Google forum post from Jade: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/business/IoLUKdg3FXY

So ignore the part about email warnings in all those and I think it still may be some of the same duplicate listing issues.

I know these are exact copies, but I don't even see how to delete them.

If we are talking remove from GMB dash, then go to edit details where you edit address - on the listing you want to delete. Then very bottom left on that screen.

That's from memory. No time to log in and look right this sec but sometimes they move stuff around. If that's not right and still can't find let us know and someone will look it up.

RobinOcatne,I think I understand what you are referring to. You can't edit the listing, and you can't access the options for that listing, all because it has been marked as a duplicate.ASSUMING you really want to delete that listing from your dash, I have created a quick video of a work around to delete those "inaccessible" listings.Video is short only about a minute and a half.[video=youtube_share;eWIluurRP2c]http://youtu.be/eWIluurRP2c[/video]

Thanks so much for that video RedBeardMarketer.

I didn't realize the edit and gear buttons were disabled, so that workaround make perfect sense.

Thanks so much for creating it AND sharing it with us!
