Can I get two web sites (French and English) for one Google Maps location

[ Edited ]

Searches in google for my English web site (https://discount-car-rental-st-martin.com) show up nicely in Google maps. How can I get searches for my French web site (https://location-voiture-st-martin.com) to show up in Google maps for the same business location (same business name and address)? Should I use a slightly different business name at the same address - eg Discount Car Rental (Location de Voitures) for the French site and get that verified too.

Thanks for any help,

John

Hi @John b

 

Its the same business, so NO, you cannot create another Google business page.

 

Google Guidelines

 

Google should auto translate depending on what TLD and language the user is searching in, but your business name is the name, that probably wont be translated.

Hi Tim,
I just want a search for either of the two web sites to get to the same
Google Maps location, the same business page. I need French or English
searches both to get to my business page.

I don't need anything translated - all I want is for searches in French to find my business page. This is not happening. I have hreflangs correctly setup, everything else is working fine.

Hi @John b

 

Sorry are we talking about the same two things here.

 

You just mentioned hreflang , well you can't set that for a Google business page, your website yes, but not a business listing.

 

I just checked your business page, in both english and french and it gets translated ? Obviously not the name because a business name is a business name, which never gets translated.

 

Also after looking at your business page:

https://plus.google.com/108008831801001953963/about

 

You do realize it is completely empty, no images, no content ( posts ).  I would certainly keep this up to date as its one small part of the business authority and ranking signal.
