Yea, claim and merge is the only thing hat's ever worked consistently for me. After claiming (or before if the NAP isn't usable for claiming) you will likely need to change it to match the main page you're merging into. If you can't get an edit to go through on an unclaimed page, the Places Editors groups are a good resource. They are not always able to change things, but normally they try. Here's the link for the group...you will need to join, I think. Places Editors
Hi all! I'm having similar issues with my team. We manage local listings for multi-location businesses and one of our services is cleaning up unofficial, duplicate FB pages. Our process is to claim the page and provide a business license to prove ownership. Then we either delete or merge based on what is necessary. However, earlier this year our claim requests aren't always being approved by FB even with necessary documentation. Some of our larger clients may have 100s of unofficial pages. We submit claims for each one and many get denied and some get approved. We haven't been able to figure out why some get denied even with correct documentation. The support that FB used to have for Pages got moved to Ads so we have no recourse if we get denied other than to resubmit and hope for a different outcome. Anyone else dealing with this and found a way around it? Thank you!
