Combining Google Plus Business Pages

Hi all!

I recently set up our business page https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/102285283011601787524/102285283011601787524/posts and couldn't find it when I searched Google.  Then it said to "Google your business" and it added another Business page.  So I did this backwards.  https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/103064356406486812117/103064356406486812117/posts

I did some word on 1st page I set up and I don't want to have to delete it and start over butI would like to Verify our Business.

Is there some way to combine these pages?

By the way..  I saw a few questions similar to this and tried to read the answers Google kept bringing me back to the main Community page.

Thanks!!

Your first url is for a Brand Page and will not have a marker on the map. That is intended for things like Nike or Coca Cola .

Your second listing is a proper "Local Business " page and will get a marker on the map once it is verified.

Your brand page is currently linked to your YouTUbe account, so if you want to end up with just one single page, this is my recommendations.

1) Complete the verification of the second "Local" listing, and complete that profile (Add images profile photo etc)
2) Make sure that both pages are owned by the same Google account.
3) Go to Youtube and disconnect the Youtube Chanel from the brand page and connect it to the local listing
4) Once YouTube is connected to the local listing, go to setting on the original Brand page, and delete the page.

Your Youtube channel will now be attached to your GMB local listing with your map marker etc.

Alex's suggestion is a great one. You also have the option of connecting the brand page to Google Maps once the local page is verified. Help doc for that is found here - https://support.google.com/business/answer/6010825?hl=en

Hello
I had a business page in the name of Kreation Next https://plus.google.com/+KreationNext
I merged it with a brand brand page.
And then my username changed from +KreationNext to +KreationNextIndia
Can I have my previous username back?

I didn't know that I will lose my the "+KreationNext"

What can I do to get it back?

Hi Chandra, most likely not. However, you can use the "Request a Call" option to speak with a GMB support rep - https://support.google.com/business/#topic=4539639&contact=1

They might be able to help you out. (It's a big "might"!)
