Too successful on Google

I live close to a state line between Tennessee and Georgia, with Ringgold being the closest town in Georgia to me. In my opinion, Tennessee is a lot more welcoming to businesses. There are fewer regulations and taxes to be paid. This is why I purposely am not licensed in Georgia, and I do not do business or advertise there.

Unfortunately, Google continues to list me in searches for Ringgold lawn care. I think I'm listed as number 6 in the local section. I get a couple calls each week from Ringgold. Is there any way to get myself removed from the Ringgold listing without hurting my SEO in Tennessee?

I am assuming that you have business listings (Yelp, manta, etc) that show your Georgia address? If so, that would make it difficult.

How is your Google Maps listing set up? It should have your address hidden, with a service area specified.

Post your site and I might have a couple more suggestions.

Anyone you could sell those leads to? Or someone you could refer them to that might send Tennessee leads your way?

I don't have a Georgia address. This is why I'm confused at being listed in Georgia. I just live close to Georgia.

And selling the leads is a good idea, should have thought of that
