We have a ranking problem. We manage two local storage businesses that are on the same street, across the street from each other. They are both on our domain, and both are on the same url tree (domain/state/city). One of these facilities has been on our domain for five years and prior to that, their original domain dates back to 2010. The other facility is new as of 2 years ago and its pages started on our domain. This newer facility (Federal Way Supreme Self Storage) ranks very poorly on Google maps with the only reach being toward the east and southeast (see attached search grid with .5 miles between dots.) We've tried many things to try and differentiate these two locations to let Google know they are not duplicates including adding address in page title and H1, address in GBP description, etc.) but nothing seems to improve our rankings for the new location. It doesn't help that there is only one word different between the two (Federal Way Heated Self Storage vs Federal Way Supreme Self Storage. It also doesn't help that both locations are managed through the same GBP account. Any ideas of how to communicate to Google that these are different?
