How to merge google plus page with a verified business page?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hey everyone!

 

This spring we have created a google plus page where we started to post content for our business. Like a month ago we have created a business page with a verified address. Is it possible to merge these two pages? Because we don't want to loose followers from our google plus page and all the content on top of that, but at the same time we don't want to manage both of these pages. We are looking for an answer because new people usually find and start to follow our google plus page, instead of our business page.

 

Thanks in advance for your answers!

you can't merge a brand (business) page and a local G+ page.

But you can connect them in case both are owned & managed in the same dashboard

Few links:

Help Center.

Since they separated GoogleMyBusiness and G+ in early 2017 this post of mine is outdated and won't work anymore

We have a GooglePlus location page with 390 followers. We have lost our custom URL just a few days ago. Do you know what might have happened? We would start a brand page, but we would lose all the followers on our local page and all the posts we've already done. What is your recommendation?

Our page USED TO BE plus.google.com/+Dunhhilltrraveldeals/posts
That stopped working, and we can no longer do updates.

Hey Katie

 

you are not only spamming Google with your listings but also spamming this forum.

I now saw and read even three of your postings.

This said:

keep on your main thread otherwise I will report you as a spammer of the forum: 

Custom URL no longer working for our Google+ business page

Can you please clarify how "you can connect them in case both are owned & managed in the same dashboard"? Like Adela B, I have an active Google Plus Page where all my business posts take place. My Google Business page is how people find me if searching for my business, right? Can I somehow direct them to my Google Plus page from my Google Business page?

Thanks!
Lisa

I would like an assist. I think I have the same problem as Adela. I have had a Google+ page for my business for quite a while here: https://plus.google.com/+79gifts/posts

I was directed to set up on Google Business and the process created a duplicate BasketWorks page, here: https://business.google.com/u/0/b/117535705440951173659/dashboard/l/02108057618447589608?hl=en

I would REALLY like to keep all the data on the first page, but apparently need the second page to be appropriately set up on Google+. I have read the second link you posted, but that is directing me to find this: "At the bottom of the profile section it will say "This page is connected to Google Maps and a new option button will appear: Connect to a different page" That does not appear on either of my pages.

The first link flashes data and information on my screen, but then goes to the "Welcome to the Business Community" page, so I am unable to read it. The help page you are directing me to is not the right problem, and I have not been able to find a solution in the help pages. I would appreciate a little more help before I put my head through a wall. Many thanks.

@Lise S

 

I don't think you have anythings to do.

Your page https://plus.google.com/+79gifts is alive and tied to GMaps.

The other page https://plus.google.com/117535705440951173659 is a kind of technical fossil and have been created during the procedure of connect your former  brand page with GMaps.

 

You should be able to manage  https://plus.google.com/+79gifts in your dashboard

If there are still questions regarding your business page  https://plus.google.com/+79gifts feel free to ask them here
