Sometimes your users add locations to your database using different spelling than a location already in your database (for example LasVegas, Texas, US instead of Las Vegas, Texas, United States).
Your GD database will treat this as two different locations.
There is a tool to merge these two locations.

  1. Go to your admin area, and navigate to the Manage Locations tab in Multilocations.
  2. Select the locations you want to merge.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Merge.
  4. On the next page, select the correct location you want to keep, and then click Set Primary.
  5. That will re-assign the correct location to all your listings in any of the locations you merged.

Do not delete a location because that will also delete any listings in that location!!

You can also use the above process to correct any of your locations: just add the correct location first and then merge with any incorrect locations.

If you have set up your site to ask visitors for their location so you can serve them the closest listings in your directory, then their answer will usually be saved by the browser.
When that visitor returns to your site, they will not be asked again for their location, because their previous choice to be geo-located or not, was saved by the browser.
You can clear this saved settings:

When a new location is added, the URL might get a “-1” appended. For example
mysite.com/location/greece-1/
This happens because WP does not allow duplicate slugs, and there already is something else using the slug greece.
This is most likely to be a tag, but can also be something else.
The solution is to search the database for the slug greece and change it to greece-1.
Then search for greece-1 and replace all results (except the one you just changed) with greece.

Read more here, where it explains how you can change the slug in more detail.

Best practice is not to add locations, because every location will have a page created and you will only end up with empty pages.
Wait for your users to add listings and locations will be automatically created as your users add listings from the frontend.

If you add the GD > Near Me Button widget, and a visitor clicks on that button, they will be taken to a page showing the listings within a set radius of their geolocation.
To change this radius, go to GD > Advanced Search > GEOLOCATION SETTINGS section > Default Near Me miles limit (1-200) and change the setting there.
