1. Full business name: Elva Baltic, Ltd.
2. Current business address: www.elvabaltic.lv
3. Current telephone number: +371 20286815
4. Google+ URL: https://plus.google.com/113205239590994765024 

 
Hi,
What should I do if my business have 2 Google+ business pages, but just one of them is the real one (new version) and I can not delete another (old version), because previous marketing manager didn't change an administrator and left (unfortunately cannot contact previous manager). Is it possible to remove this old version (duplicate)? Thank you in advance.
 
Old/inactive version: https://plus.google.com/104297632330831107211 (this one shouldn't be visible).
 
Thank you in advance,
 
Jelena

@Jelena R There isn't an official process to get rid of brand pages (which is what the inactive version is). The only way to delete them is to have access to the account that they live in. 

 

On the bright side, that type of page does not negatively impact the current local page that you manage. I wouldn't stress about the old page.

Hi Colan,

I've got an acess to the old/inactive G+ account. Now I want to to merge them (active + inactive).
I watched a few tutorial videos, but in the google.com/takeout tool can not find "Google+ circles transfer tool" so I can migrate 1 profile to another.
Google support says: Circle transfers aren't available anymore. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

So does it mean I would never be able to merge them?

If it was me, I would just delete the brand/inactive page. It only has 4 followers and nobody really sees the G+ posts these days anyway.

Hi Colan,

I have the same problem and I worry that having several google plus pages confuses people or seo companies as I receive alot of phone calls about different information for my corporation. My company is Pool Heaven and I have 2 or 3 pages on google plus set up by previous seo companies. We now handle it in house and set up our own that we manage. Is there anyway I can delete all inactive google plus pages for my corporation? Thank you !
