Not a duplicate

I have a business which is in a large van. That van sets up in regular locations around the city. A different one on each day of the week. Wherever the van is it has the same telephone number, email address and web address. So for years Google has been marking my different locations as duplicates and disabling them. I have been deleting them and re listing them with slightly different details to try and avoid the automated duplicate system but there must be a better way of doing it, right?

 

Is it possible to have one listing with multiple locations?

Hi @Ross T

 

No is the answer.

 

You can have 1 business page, using a serviced area criteria for the Van as a whole, but not locations that you park up at.

OK Tim, thanks for that. So how do I have 3 listings with the same contact details?

Hey @Ross T

 

I think you are fibbing a little with same details.

 

You have 2 live that used different contact details, and the two that were suspended used the same mobile number and different addresses.

I have one live and two that have been marked as duplicates. They all need to have the same contact details.

There should only be 1 business page for this business

Hi Tim. The Taylored Cycles Ltd listing is unrelated to my question.

That is the only business page you should have

Are you saying that I am not allowed more than one business page at all?
