Google+ site for netshop

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

We have a brick and mortar store and netshop. I have created a Google Business page for my store. Let's call it Bobs Piano's.

So if you search for "Bobs Piano's" or "Bobs Piano's Main Street" you get the Business page. But if you search for "Bobs Piano's Netshop" you get nothing. I can see in our Webmaster tools that people are using this search term.

Should i set up a new page for "Bobs Piano's Netshop"? Or is there a way to connect that search word to the other page?

you shouldn't set up a second (local) page for "Bobs Piano's Netshop" as pure onine businesses are not eligible for local page at all. You of course can create a brand page calling it "Bobs Piano's Netshop"

Thank you for your response.
Hm. I wasn't sure about the difference between local pages and brand pages. So I read this document:
http://localu.org/blog/google-now-allows-brand-pages-become-local-pages/

I didn't really get any wiser. :-/
So is the difference that a Brand Page doesn't have an address?

the best approach would be reading this HC article: https://support.google.com/business/answer/4570248?hl=en

Can't you just rename the current Business page name to include the word "Netshop" ?

Or create a Unique URL with the word netshop inside it?

Hi @Yadunandan P

 

Google's guidelines expressly forbid adding keywords or descriptors to a Business page. The name on the listing has to be the same as the real world business name.

 

@Carl S - in addition to the suggestions from Helmut, have you asked for assistance from the Search Console (Webmasters) forum? It sounds like your question about content not showing for 'bobs pianos netshop' might be more related to your website (organic search) rather than local search.

Hi @PriyaC
I have not requested anything in the webmasters forum.

I should mentrion that the stores have multiple locations, Mainstreet, Apple Street, New Street. All of them have there own Business Page.

Ok @Helmut Geissler that seems like what i want.

I will try that. Thank you.
