Sort out biz pages

Hi, I wanted to create a brand page, with Google+ site, linked to my personal page (and company email): https://plus.google.com/u/3/103229757139345627425?_ga=1.21493885.793055783.1467055863 as I'm the founder of the company. Now, there are 3 pages for The Well Space on Google:

https://plus.google.com/u/3/108427440095010374310?hl=en

https://plus.google.com/u/3/117597403248651314862?hl=en

https://plus.google.com/u/3/103229757139345627425?hl=en (this looks like me)

 

and I can't figure out which one is the right one. Also, it seems like the YouTube account for my biz is linked to my personal profile (when I change my profile pic, it appears as the profile pic of the channel), which is so wrong. Please help me re-organize/ delete the wrong accounts/ pages.

@Franziska A

 

https://plus.google.com/103229757139345627425

https://plus.google.com/117597403248651314862

and

https://plus.google.com/108427440095010374310 

 

are just brand pages

 

btw 

https://plus.google.com/u/3/103229757139345627425?_ga=1.21493885.793055783.1467055863 is just an other URL for 

 

In case you manage all three pages in your dahboard should not hesitate deleting at least two of them as redundant and being duplicates

Helmut, correct. My business has no locations, therefore I created a brand page. How can I find out which account these brand pages are linked to, and then link one of them to my correct personal account? So that I can delete the redundant ones.

for brand pages there is no method provided by Google to figure out who owns the pages or under which account the brand page was creates and is now managed.

I see. So my only option (that I see now) is to start from scratch and create a new brand page linked to my personal page, right? But when I go to my dashboard (the link you posted above), I can only create a business page, with locations etc. How can I create a brand page from there?

what do you refer to as "my personal page"
There are no personal pages - just personal G+ profiles
And GoogleMyBusiness pages are not even necassary tied to a personal G+ page

I thought I read somewhere that every business or brand page needs to be tied to a personal page.
That's where I'm confused as well: there are GoogleMyBusiness pages and Google+ businesses pages, right? What's the difference?

And if I want to move my youtube channel to my biz page, I need to sign in with my personal Google creds in order to be able to do that. So, how can a biz page NOT be linked to a personal google account?

in the early time of GooglePlaces or GoogleMyBusiness you needed a G+ page to create and manage a local page.
This time is over.
Anyone having a GoogleAccount can create brand pages and local pages.
About Youtube channels I have no experience at all - I'm sorry
