Multiple Versions of same business

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi
Is there a way of finding out if a location/business has multiple listings that may have been created over a few years via different platforms such as the old Google Local etc. The reason I ask is we recently had this happen and an agency showed there were 5 profiles for the same place and that one of them was the better one to use and the rest should be deleted. this involved us speaking direct to google to get done. 
This would be a very handy tool to be able to clearly find any poor listings and keep just the one. However I cant see an obvious way of finding it?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Lee

It is getting harder to find duplicates - the easiest way I find is to use site: plus.google.com business name variants

This will find both bricks and mortar as well as SAB businesses.

(I've added a space between site: plus to stop the emoji appearing but normally there'd be no space between the colan and the plus)

Something like this Lee

site: plus.google.com priya chandra consulting

(replace priya chandra consulting with the business you're looking for and do not use a space between the colon and the p)

Hi,
We have 2 Google pages. How do we delete one of them if we do not have its login credentials.
https://plus.google.com/103003421178284942947 - Need to delete this.
Thanks
