Google Places dilemma. I have a client, a psychologist, who is operating from a leased desk in someone else’s business (weight loss advice). They are two separate businesses but they share an address and even a phone (the receptionist redirects incoming calls). At the moment my client is ranking well in local results but with her old address in the Google Places listing. Now, the weight loss business ALSO ranks in local results for the term “psychologist <location>’ even though they are only cross-selling my clients services.
So should we claim our Places listing, change the address and phone and risk loss of visibility? Or just let it go for now and enjoy the two listings we have?
Note: the client’s website and all other major directories have the correct NAP. Google Places is incorrect but ranks her #1 for a key geo-phrase.
