My business listing information is wrong

If you own a business, use Google My Business to manage your listing’s information for free. You'll be able to quickly manage details like your business hours, address, and photos.

Wrong business descriptions

Google tries to show accurate, up-to-date short descriptions for businesses. We don't remove descriptions for being unclear or negative. We only remove the following:

  • Keywords and review snippets that have been associated with an unrelated place.
  • Editorial summaries if the information included describes services that the business doesn't offer.

If you'd like, you can report an incorrect business description.
