I have a problem and I tried to take care of it by following instructions, but a week has passed and it remains unresolved. My website (URL) is showing up in Google “Local Business Results” under one of the listings, 1st page on Google. The problem is I don't own that business nor is my website affiliated with the business it is listed under.
I am receiving a lot of traffic from Google for a KW phrase that has absolutely nothing to do with my website. I can not emphasize this enough, there is nothing even remotely similar about my site and the service that is advertised.
I have clicked on the “report a problem” and to this today nothing has happened. Who should I contac? How can I tell Google of this problem aside from the ineffective “report a problem”?
My bounce rate is off the roof as you can imagine. I worked hard on this site, writing quality content and I am worried that my hard work is being compromised by the Google Search engine being confused. My KW is widgets-123 but Google is sending me traffic for something that does not even come close to my KW.
I managed to edit the internal info in the listing including the URL but my URL remains on the first page of Google for ABC business (Local Business Results).
How can I rectify this problem?
