    My current phone number was used on a prior bossiness that is no longer open. When I have been claiming my current business on google and such it comes up with 2 business under that phone number. Also when I run some of those free website SEO checkers by putting in your phone number and info it always comes back with error linked to 2 business under one number. Is this hurting my business current business website ranking? Should I change my number? Or is there their away to erase my old business from the web?

    Probably.

    If you're starting from scratch, that's the easiest fix. If you're not, then you'll have 2 business names and 2 phone numbers, being mixed and matched, to deal with.

    You need to claim those listings, or log in to the accounts you do have, and fix the errors. If the business is no longer operating, and the listing has "claim/fix/this business is closed" options, you'll want to follow each site's procedures.
