Issues and Troubleshooting
From 1994-2003 we were known as "Intermart Software" even though we were substantially web designers throughout those years. We dropped "software" from the name in 2003 and have been using the name Intermart Web Design or Intermart Design ever since. Our core business is web design and we do not create software anymore. To my dismay the old name has suddenly replaced our true trading name on Google Maps even though we made no changes in Places. I mean from a marketing standpoint this is unbelievably dangerous to our profitability seeing we are solely web designers or graphic designers now. Is this related to Googles new update and it's drive towards single accounts has damaged our efforts severely and made it appear incorrectly. Is there anyway we can solve this? Can my current and now long standing legal trading name be restored and provide relevancy for searchers ever again?
