location extensions for multiple accounts

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all,

 

The massive change which is made by Google a few weeks ago cannot be unnoticed. The location extensions are a welcome enhancement, but for one of my clients it seems to be useless. We have an international client who has multiple Adwords accounts. These Adwords accounts are categorized by country, with multiple locations per country. 

 

Google has made an individual business account for every adwords account. During this transition, multiple adresses have gone incorrect, incomplete of have even been deleted. We have turned the location extensions off, because of the faulty information. 

 

We could change the adresses in the Google My Business interface. However, these accounts need to be verified manually (by post). Currently, there is not a good workaround for this issue. Imagine you have a client with a office in Vietnam, how do you verify this office? 

 

Does anyone has a similar problem? How do you deal with this? 

 

Warm regards,

Hi Rembrant H,

 

There's an instant verification process that can be done, provided the website is verified in Webmaster Tools and log in email address is the same for Google My Business & Webmaster Tools. Please follow this article for more info on instant verification.

 

Hope this helps,

Hi Sumanth,

Thank you for the reply! I will try to verify my business accounts through webmaster tools.

This is kind of a work around, but hopefully it will work!
