3 Google+ pages -- why?

Hello -- we are a nonprofit. We had a Google+ page, then created a Google+ business page in order to make sure our profile was attached to a business profile instead of a 'personal' G+ page. In the process, we lost all of our original followers and were told that it was not possible to merge or transfer our original Google+ page into the new business page. We noticed our phone number was displaying incorrectly in Google searches for 'helphopelive.' We were prompted to 'claim' our business to edit the information. We 'claimed' the business and are now awaiting a verification request to our physical address within the week. But now we see ANOTHER new Google+ business page showing up under our account. What is going on? Is this new page going to be the only 'verified' Google+ page? If that's the case, what can we do to prevent losing our followers and our Collections AGAIN?

Hi @HelpHOPELive S


These are the Pages I can find ( if there are more, please point them out )


Personal Page but Branded up :


Brand Page:


Business Page:


Business page has not been verified or branded up.


Are these the 3 you see ?


Once Business page verfied, you could merge the Brand page into Business Page.


If you dont want the personal page showing up, use a humans name, or change settings to NOT visible.
