Unrelated local site in Google results - and it's one of mine

Msg#: 4276820 posted 7:53 pm on Mar 4, 2011 (gmt 0)

I have an auto glass website coming up rosy for searches for a local motel...and the local motel only shows up as a Place.

There was a 301 in play a while back, but certainly not between these two sites. it was from the old motel site to the new one. perhaps i made an error, regardless, how do i fix it?

We had a large number of errors of this kind - competitor's URL showing on place page as well as in related places. Google's advice was to delete our entries and resubmit. This fixed some errors but not others.

The Places shows up just fine, of course lower than preferred :-)

It is the organic that bugs me. Are you saying i should go into WMT and delete the site and the re-add it?
