    to start....i searched all over, cannot find any advice on this
    here's the issue...(i've actually had 3 clients that had this problem)
    Company has Address A for a few years, hires someone else to create their website, do seo etc....
    years later, they move, google still wont change the address
    when the address gets changed in google places, it just creates a new listing, leaving the old one as it is.
    but it gets worse
    the old listing (with the incorrect address), is the one that keeps the reviews, comments, pictures, stars, and videos
    the new listing stays naked.

    here's what i've tried
    i've tried Changing the address in google places, waited for the client to get the pin, had them put in the pin and the result is as above.
    i've tried contacting google support about this, nothing got fixed.

    what do i do next? anyone got any ideas?

    the only way to get around it seems to go on a mad llinking session it worked for me yer the google places went up and down quite a bit but after a few month it has well settled and a lot better.

    did you spread the citation or just link to the google places page?
    i already spread 2-3k citations around for the correct address for one of these
