Random Address Appearing In Search Results
Posted 16 May 2012 - 06:27 AM
I noticed I was getting very little traffic for my usually successful keyword Ben Nevis. So fearing I might be a Penquin/Panda victim I checked the search results. I'm coming out at No 1 position after the paid ads, and above Wikipedia. But then I noticed that under the snippet from my site, it had this sentence:
Show map of 103 High Street, Fort William, PH33 6DG
Now, my site describes the walk up Ben Nevis - which is not located in a shop on a High Street!! I also notice the same address is showing the the Wikipedia entry below.
I think this is having a bad effect on my traffic as people are assuming it must be a shop.
I don't see that this improves the search results - and don't know what I can do to have the address removed? Has anyone else been affected? What are Google thinking about!!
Just to clarify, there is no address mentioned anywhere on my site, and to my knowledge, the Great Ben has not been given a postcode! :0)

When I search for Ben Nevis, I don't see any map, nor any reference to any shops (on the first page). The Wikipedia article is at the top, followed by a general guide to Ben Nevis, followed by a few tourist sites. Your own site, Trish, is at number 7, and is the first one that specifically deals with walks on the Ben.
I know this doesn't answer your question. But it does go to show how fast the target is constantly moving.
