A dentist called me a few minutes ago with a request to help get rid of a Google My Business page that had been automatically created by Google. The page was for his nephew who had considered joining the practice but never did. Somehow Google got hold of his data and created the page. It will be easy enough to get Google to shut the page down via GMB support and I could quickly check the main data aggregators, but I wanted to make sure we also nipped this problem at all possible sources of the data. But how to find them?

The app quickly generated browser tabs of Google SERPs for different combinations of the NAP elements.

The first result from ucomparehealth.com had a full listing for Alexander Jubb at the business’ address:
I then found this listing, strangely, in the NAME – ADDRESS SERP:
And a CitySearch profile:
And voila, mystery solved, in about 30 seconds, thanks to NAP Hunter.
