Getting Google to change incorrect information
I set up a website for a farmhouse bed and breakfast establishment in England about 10 years ago. The farm has a very common name. Some time ago the site started getting hits from Google from visitors searching for a farm with the same name in a town on the other side of the country. I did a search on Google and found an entry with all the details for that farm but with my domain name. I have tried reporting the error to Google but have not had an acknowledgment of any kind. I also phoned the farm in question but they say they have also tried to get the website address corrected, but have not got anywhere.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get it changed? It's bad enough for my customer who gets enquiries from people who think they are more than 200 miles from where they want to stay. But it's obviously worse for the other farm when their website is unrecognised by Google.
