    for the keyword "mould removal toronto" on google.ca, 1 website occupies 2 positions (#1 and #16) for the same url.

    has anyone else seen this before?

    Looks like one is a local business listing and one is a normal site listing. Maybe they are counted as different listings by Google.

    I thought business listings (by themselves) dont show meta descriptions though?

    Honestly man I just took a guess based on what I saw. I have never done local SEO so I know nothing about how business listings work.

    Maybe business listings show a meta description when only one business is being shows?

    EDIT:

    The meta descriptions are slightly different.

    Maybe it is not a meta description? Maybe you can enter a business description in your Google business page?

    This - one is direct to the website, the other is via Googles local business map "thing" (you can see the address just under the site description in the URL)
    One direct, one referral.
