Multiple G+ pages - seeking advice please

Hi folks - this seems a complex one to me, but I'm sure many of you are vastly smarter than me! I seem to have two G+ pages, and I really only want one, to avoid duplication, confusion, etc. In short, details as follows:

1 - The following link is my VERIFIED page, it contains all the 'My Business' reviews and details, and is the one I wish to retain. Oddly it's harder to navigate to from my account:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/116054121537380449510/116054121537380449510

2 - Then there is this page (which seems to be my default G+ page), and which has little to no info I'm particularly attached to. It is not 'verified'. This is the one I end up on if I log into my gmail, click my profile icon in top right, and then select "Google + Profile":
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+RobbieTMagician

I followed (and commented on) this article in an attempt to merge or consolidate the two pages, but my attempts were without success. Kept running into roadblocks.
http://www.getsmartacre.com/how-to-merge-multiple-google-pages/

It has been suggested that I simply delete the second page (/+RobbieTMagician), but I'm just scared of taking some irreversible step that might have a negative consequence or flow on impacting on my other uses of Google (email, adwords, analytics, youtube, etc).

Any help or guidance much appreciated, as reaching the end of my tether!
Thank you. Hoping someone can help! Robbie.

Hi Rob,

No everything should be fine if you delete the personal profile.

Hi Robbie,

You can't merge a business page (https://plus.google.com/u/0/116054121537380449510/about) and a personal profile (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+RobbieTMagician/posts).

If you don't want to keep using the personal profile then I'd recommend just putting a pinned post explaining that more up to date information is available via your business page and provide a link there. It is almost impossible to find a personal profile outside of Google+ though so I wouldn't worry too much.

Hi Priya

Really appreciate you taking a moment to respond, and so succinctly explain the situation.

Just to double check and er on the side of caution... If I were to simply delete my personal G+ profile (ie: the one that's not linked to Google maps and my reviews), there shouldn't be any risk to anything else?

I really don't need a G+ personal page, just one relating to my business, hence why I'm leaning towards just deleting the personal page. Just wanted to double check this shouldn't cause any mayhem? Thank you again.

Regards
Rob
