Hi Dan,

You can add and manage multiple locations with the help of Google my business account and link it with Google + and/or adwords.

Hi Dan, it's the same process as you most likely went through with your first location. Here's the relevant help center doc - https://support.google.com/business/answer/2911778?hl=en

Hey Colan
Quick question - I hope - I have recently added a second location to our account and now when people search for our business they only see the primary location, it doesn't even show that there is another location. Is there a way to switch the primary and the secondary locations? I really want people to see the second location as we will likely close down the primary one in the near future.
Company name is Music Box in New Westminster, BC...

@Donna B The second location likely isn't showing because it's newer and hasn't had time to build up authority in Google's eyes.

ok - so what should we do to make it visible? Is there anything other than writing new posts, getting reviews that can speed this along?  -- Regards, Donna Bossert

 @Donna B 

 

A good start:

 

  1. Get the business listed on the top 50 or so business directories in Canada - https://www.whitespark.ca/top-local-citation-sources-by-country
  2. Develop a review strategy to get reviews on the Google Local listing as well as some of the other sites that customers can leave reviews on
  3. Find ways to have the business mentioned on other online sources (local community websites, press release, local chamber...etc)

 

That should get the tires rolling.

Q1) Does this mean a separate Google + page needs to be set up to add a second location with the same name?

Q2) I went through steps now forgotten to set my second location up. This was a good 5 weeks ago and involved importing a spreadsheet with my hours etc. How long should the process take?
