Q: I have found an issue where when I search for a specific business name in Google, Google Places (GP) comes up with 2 different different businesses. That's fine and I think I know how to resolve that in theory (if anyone has a specific site that they prefer or recommend as authority, please link to it as I would be greatly appreciative). However, I'm more interested in what happens when I do a keyword search that renders the business as a result. It brings up a complete new listing! I guess what I'm really asking is for an explanation or a method that will thoroughly search out ALL Google Places pages that way I can make sure there are no Places pages sucking my reviews and rankings that boost my organic. Any local remedies?
Specifics: The two GP listings that come up when I search the specific name in Google have 3 reviews and 7 reviews respectively. When I search they keyword term for their business, it pulls up a GP listing with 4 reviews. All of these reviews are unique. None are copies and GP has even indexed different reviews from different sites for each GP listing. A medical directory for one, yahoo for another and citysearch (maybe, can't remember) for the other. So confusing. Any light shedding would be appreciated.
Also, I have a ton of questions about SEO that pop into my head all the time that I can't find answers for through Google. Do you guys get pretty tired of answering questions over and over again from the same person? I guess I'm really just wondering how long I can extend a warm welcome
