I am having a bit of trouble with a number of different profiles that have been set up for my brand over time and wondered if you could help me get it neatened up:

 

Previously a colleague set up a Google+ profile (https://plus.google.com/+nitewatches), then another was created (https://plus.google.com/107544100563326578901) which is the one that we currently use and is linked to our youtube channel.

Ideally, we would like our Google+ presence to have the custom URL (+nitewatches). We have been advised to transfer the local element of the currently used https://plus.google.com/107544100563326578901 page, and this will move the map location and reviews, but none of the posts, to the brand page with the custom url.

 

Would you concur with this?

The page with the custom URL is actually the Local G+ page - https://plus.google.com/+nitewatches/about I don't see any reason to merge this page with the brand page. If it's just a matter of wanting the YouTube page to be attached to the Local page you can do that - https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/3056283?hl=en

Found this thread as I am making a Google Map for a business. In some other maps I looked at  coming up on google search I can slo see "Profiles" where Facebook, Instagram and Youtube channel is showed. But I can't find where to add this?
