Multiple Google+ Business Profiles Created; Need Only One

Hi,

 

The business name is Eduspire Solutions. The address we've used is 212 Forest Hills Cir. Devon, PA, 19333. Telephone number is 855-EDUSPIRE. Google+ URLs listed below.  

 

Somehow 3 separate Google+ pages have been created for my company, and I need to streamline this without losing all my information, posts, and without having to start all over.

This page/account seems like it can be deleted: https://plus.google.com/118150254506079262531/posts
The only thing is, I'm not sure if this is the original "My Business" page and whether deleting it would affect the Google+ page I want to keep

This page has lots of content, a handful of followers, and is connected to our website, so I would like to keep it: https://plus.google.com/106152679253277953812/posts
This is the page I would like to update to reflect the business info...

And this page seems to have the accurate business listing details, as well as some current content, and is linked to our YouTube channel, but this page should not exist (nor do we want the name Google assigned us, Eduspire Solutions Devon). https://plus.google.com/+EduspireSolutionsDevon/about

I'd like everything to be connected with one main account...I'm not sure what the relationship between Google and YouTube is, but our website, YouTube channel, business details, and content should all flow through one Google+ account, and the second one is preferable.

Can anyone help me figure out what happened, why there are three, which email address(es) they're associated with, where the third-party sites/apps are connected, and instruct me how to just get it back to one? I always thought Google My Business and Google+ were two separate things, so I was unaware that we actually had duplicate accounts out there.

Help — thanks!

@Jessica C,

https://plus.google.com/118150254506079262531 is a personal profile. So you can delete or keep it.

 

Or visit the settings pages and hide the profile from search.

 

https://plus.google.com/106152679253277953812 is indeed a brand page,. To move the channel from the other page. you must be an owner of both pages, then fill out this for to move the channel over. https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/4627568?hl=en

 

Figuring out who the owners are is the tough part. I would suggest contacting each page via a private message to see if any of your emails get a message.

 

A G+ page is usually created when creating a listing, however in your case you have a brand page NOT a local listing. 

 

This is a common problem, but also a tough one to solve as support for brand pages is difficult to obtain.
