Answer

First, you need to remove your new listing:

  1. Go to the “Info” tab on the menu on the left
  1. On the right-hand side, click on “Remove listing”

Then you need to claim ownership of the original listing, check my guide»

Once sorted, you can use my Award-Winning GMB Empower Training to improve the ranking and optimise your Google My Business Profile.
