Need to merge two Google Business Accounts

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I currently have two google plus business listings that I would like to merge. One has several reviews that I would like to retain but it isn't our "verified" listing, whereas the other one is verified but does not contain the reviews that our clients gave us. 

 

Below are the links to the two listings:

 

1) https://plus.google.com/112045329369185155807?hl=en

 

2) https://plus.google.com/103810408178908238414?hl=en

 

I would appreciate any assistance on this by a Google representative. Thank you.

merging of GoogleMyBusiness listings (not at all G+ pages as they are never more part of GoogleMyBusiness)  can achieved by Googlers only - mean you need to contact Business Support

By Googlers do you mean regular users like myself? I tried to look up
the option of merging two business listings but it is not possible. If
you have specific contact information for Business Support at Google
that would be greatly appreciated.

sorry for my not very precise wording 

With "Googlers" I refer to Google employees.

Note we contributors here are no "Googlers" at all

Hi

 

Its better if you solve this yourself if this applies to you.

 

'Duplicates' are because you have data out on the web with slightly different business name, address, phone no or primary category.

 

Search by these details on the unwanted search result. Correct the different data on the other web entry.

 

Once you have done that the 'duplicate' will dissapear.

 

I have seen googlers say they have fixed problems in the 'back end' but when data aggragators push their copy of you data whicj is wrong back into the seearch-o-sphere the problem comes back. You may have to iteratively clear the data till the right version is in these other caches.

 

Andrew.

Thank you So if the name and address is the same it will merge on its own?

Nope = merging of two items of different PlaceIDs (regardless having same address, name or other common stuff) needs always a special action by Google.
