Multiple Domains for Google plus

Hi,

 

I had a diagnostic ran on our website.  In the report it brought to my attention that our business google plus profile only shows up when someone searches "allenroofing.com" in the search bar.  However, nothing comes up when you type "www.allenroofing.com" or "www.theroofwizard.com" or "theroofwizard.com".  We own both the "allenroofing.com" domain and "theroofwizard.com" domain (which redirects to allenroofing.com).  How can I get all sites to show up when they're typed directly into the search bar?  On the Google My Business profile there is only room for one domain.  

 

Thank You,

Laura Weldon

Can you clarify. When you say nothing comes up for the search terms what do you mean by that. I get 129,000 results. But I think you are referring to having a listing come up for the two different company names is that correct?  It is against the google policy to have multiple listings for similar companies at the same location. So you can not have a Google My Business page for both. Especially since one redirects to the other.

Well I had a diagnostic ran and the google plus page doesn't show on the right side of the screen for "www.allenroofing.com" just "allenroofing.com".   Basically the diagnostic said I didn't have a google plus profile.  We do it just doesn't show if you add "www."  I am not sure if it is a big deal, I was just trying to fix our trouble spots to help our overall SEO.  

 

Also, the company branding is "the roof wizard" by "Allen Roofing and Construction". So we own both domains www.theroofwizard.com and www.allenroofing.com.  Basically, you're saying we can't have a listing for both domains correct?   

 

Thank you for your help David!

For a company that has one location, you can have one Google My Business Page. Only one. One domain looks to be forwarded to another so that is acting as one. The www vs non www version of the site should not affect how the google my business page shows up. That has me confused. Have you set up your preference of which version of the site you want active. WWW vs no WWW? Google sees these as two different things. This can be done in Google Search Console, used to be webmaster tools. I hope this answers your questions
