Unofficial quote from a Tweet at LocalU yesterday.

Official quote or no... Since you all know DUPES are the bane of my existence AND if you work with lots of Drs., Dentists and Attorneys then I know they are for you as well... I'll grab onto any little ray of hope I can find!

@Shyborg1

@joelh_gmaps says @google does plan on making duplicate listing management easier in the future for businesses.

Seems to me it should not be that hard.

Your business is 123 Main Street. A very similar dupe crops up for 123 Main St.

G pulls it into your dash and ask if this is the same business and do you want to merge into your existing listing?

Help with dupes can't come soon enough, right guys?

They could be referring to the new interface being tested in Canada.
