Listing both business locations on a search result page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am looking to see if there is a setting to show both locations of our business in a search result?  We have two locations with the same name - different address and would like both to show up during a search result.  How do I make this happen?

Please include the following with your question (for both locations):
1. Full business name
2. Current business address
3. Current telephone number
4. Google+ URL

In addition to @Helmut Geissler question, it would be helpful to know what type of search result you are referring to. 3-Pack? Gmaps? Knowledge graph?

Hello Helmut and Colan,
The full business name is Confluence Financial Partners. Our addresses are:
100 First Avenue, Suite 600 Pittsburgh, PA 15222 telephone: 412-391-0377
1000 Noble Energy Dr. Suite 240 Canonsburg, PA 15317 telephone: 724-271-8801
I don't know what the Google+ URL is. Just signed that up yesterday.

We are probably looking for more on Google maps than anything as that is how people find how to get to our locations. However, the knowledge graph would be helpful to have both locations show as well.

Thanks,
Brenda

first of all Brenda

Please remove immediately your email address from your last response as it
violates the guidelines of the forum.


Regarding the topic:

I get both listings with a knowledgraph if searching for "Confluence
Financial Partners near [typing the according city]"

I can't provide you with any method to get botl locations listed "at once"

Helmut,
We are looking for something like this

https://www.google.com/#q=pat+catans

People won't necessarily be putting in the neighborhood they want to find us in. We want this map to represent there are other locations they can find us. How can we make this happen?

Thanks,
Brenda

Hi @Brenda T, thanks for the details. Google will rarely show two locations for the same business in Gmaps, unless you are performing a branded search. 

 

For a search related to your services offered, it's rare, especially in your case where the locations are in different cities. Google returns search results based first and foremost on what it thinks will provide the best user experience. And if you think about it, it doesn't make sense to return two results for the same business if there are other options to choose from as well. 

 

Does that make sense?
