Real Estate Firm Wants to Be Real

June 19, 2020

Digital business listings can be just as lucrative as physical property holdings. The right domain name can sell for thousands and videogames sell digital objects and upgrades in micro transactions. When a digital holding that belongs to you, however, is “stolen” it can be difficult to reclaim it. The Fisher Group shares how this happened to them in the blog post, “Google Gave Away Our Business Listing To A Competitor And Our Fight To Get It Back.”

A real estate firm associated with Summit Sotheby’s had their Google Business account merged with another agent’s. There was not an explanation for the sudden merger and the firm was forced to rely on webmaster support manned entirely by volunteers. The forums offered no help and the real estate firm spent over year trying to track down someone who could assist them.

The real estate firm wanted their old page back, because I had positive reviews from clients and through hard work they reached the top of searches for their area. Without anywhere else to turn, they were forced to write a plea:

“So at this point we’ve decided to write about it more publicly in hopes of getting the attention of someone at Google who can help us out with this unique and annoying situation. We’ll be also seeing what the SEO community thinks and if they’ve had this experience before, we certainly couldn’t find anyone else with this issue searching around on Reddit, Facebook groups and other SEO forums.

While we’re sad we’re losing out on some business, we would like to see that this doesn’t happen to anyone else in the future because we know how precious those reviews can be to businesses of all sizes.”

The issue still is not resolved. Remember: If one is not findable in Google, one may not exist or be “real.”
