Questions about b2bYellowpages How do I remove a duplicate listing of my company?

Your company may have more than one listing in our directory as a result of 2 factors.

a. Our licensee (Localeze) has more than one listing of your company
b. You joined our directory as a Premium Member but did not claim your listing from our licensee when you joined. Therefore we are showing both.

Here is how to resolve:

a. If you did not join as a Premium Member and the listing(s) is from our licensee, you need to inform Localeze of the listing(s) you do not want. Please view our remove record page for more information

b. If you are a Premium Member that has 2 listings - one as a Premium Member and one from our licensee, please contact us with both URLs. Ask us to assign the Localeze listing to your Premium Member listing. In essence you are claiming the record. The information from our Licensee will no longer appear. Upon claiming, the information we show will only be the Premium Member Information you submitted upon joining. Note: This is an automated process. The information must be the same in some way - either URL, address, phone, etc. in order for us to verify you are the authorized representative of the record you are claiming.

c. If you have both a Premium Member listing and one or more listings from Localeze, use the above step B to claim one listing and have it assigned to your Premium Member listing. You will then need to use step A to advise Localeze of the listing(s) you want removed.
