I specialize in Google Places and work with Google to help people in the Google Places forum.

I look at hundreds of Place pages every week but have never seen a double site show up.

I'd like to see it and then after I analyze it I can tell you how to fix it. The fix would need to be via Google. Yola would not have control over it.

if you can post the link to your Place page I'll take a look for you.

Probably not.
This sounds as if there's an issue with the canonical site setting?

I am not sure if this is what you need? Also if you type in central az restaurant equipment repair phoenix you will see two yola sites. If you type in restaurant equipment repair phoenix on the 1st page a red dot shows us on 7th st thats okay but if you click on it it shows us twice? Also same thing happened with our other company central appliance repair service, 2 listings on maps.The central az site shows the same domain name not a custom domain. The central appliance listing shows the yolasite domain and the new custom domain, this happened after upgrading to silver?

Thank You For Any Help On This Matter!
No that link won't work, but I found you.

Oh shoot, it's just a regular dupe. The way you explained it above it sounded like the URL was duplicated twice on the same Place page, so I jumped in thinking I'd see a new bug.

Here is the short link to both listings:

It's just a regular duplicate listing. Happens all the time for a variety of reasons. BUT depending on your situation it COULD get you banned.

There are slight differences in the 2 listings. (address and categories).

But both are claimed. Could you have mistakenly done a 2nd listing in a different Google account???

No way for this to happen unless someone created and claimed it. It could not just happen based on upgrading to silver. Google does not create Place pages due to your web site, they create dupes when they find conflicting data on the web. But even if they create dupes, which they do all the time they would/could never show up as owner verified unless you or someone else verified them.

HERE'S A Q. When did you create? Did you recently change the address? Because sometimes if you do things wrong in the claiming or editing cycle Google will create a temporary dupe, then the 2 will merge back together in 6 weeks or so.

IMPORTANT you need to check your Google accounts to be sure you didn't accidentally create the dupe. IT'S A VIOLATION and can get you SUSPENDED.
