Same Telephone Number for Two Verified Google+ Business Page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi!

 

We already have a verified Google+ page for our current office, and we want to create a new one for our new office branch. Is it okay to have the same phone number listed on our existing page and new one? We still don't have a landline number for the new office, and it's still on appointment basis. 

If there are things to watch out before creating a Google+ page for a new office location, kindly comment them. 

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

The phone number should be the phone number that connects to your individual business location as directly as possible.
If you didn't have landline number for that direct location I would suggest leave alternative number in introduction section.
Once you get the phone number you can input after that.

I hope it can help

@Darwin Pas far as I know you will run into two issues:

 

- Locations having the same phone number can cosidered as spam (at least one of it)

- locartions open on appointment only are not considered as eligible.

Googles intention is:

Users finding a location can and should be sure the location is staffed during the opening hours.

Thank you so much for the help!

One last thing though, is it okay to have the same business name for 2 verified pages? Since it's basically the same company but difference office branches.

Thanks!

Yes, they should be listed using the same business name if they are different locations for the same business.
