Hi,

 

I'm setting up a google my business page and when I get to the end, it says "continuing will create a google + page for this business" -but I already have a google + page for this business and I don't want to have two, so how do I fix it?

any Google My Business page is also a G+ page and vice versa.

what kind of page are you trying to create while getting the mentioned
message?

The page you linked is a brand page and will not show up on Maps or on
GoogleSearch with a knowledge graph

Oh hi, thank you, I was in webmaster tools > other resources and it suggested that I "show people that I'm open for business" and sign up for "Google My Business" is that the same as a Google + page? I'm confused.
