Good Day,

I am currently working on some citation cleanup project. I just want to know if it will be a problem if the business name in some sites are missing suffix or like using the abbreviation like for example "limited" to "ltd" and other more suffix.

Thanks

Nope, it shouldn't be a problem. For business names, near match and partial match are picked up if other data matches. Prefixes can be a little more problematic, but for suffixes you should have no problems.

This is a question that I've always wondered about. Thanks for the clarification, Broland!
