I need help. I started a business 1 year ago. After a few months, I then hired a consultant and he advised to change me busines name. So I did and now I am trying to rebrand  my google+ but the url still has the old name. How do I go about this? I have looked and looked . It seems to be easier to delete the page and  start over. What should I do?

Hi @Jonathan M


The link you provided is a Brand Page, which means its not visible in search and maps.


I'm not sure if a Brand Page can be changed, you will have to ask in Google+ community:


If you want to create a Google Business Page, start here >>


Please Note:

You should not use that address you listed, because that is a UPS address and against guidelines, which will result in it being suspended.


If you operate from Home, then use your Home address, BUT select beneath the address section: "I serve customers at their location"


This will hide your home address, but leave City and State Visible.


Once all filled in, select Verify.
