Two business profiles - info is muddled between them

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have two Google Plus profiles: one for Louise Rose Photography (family photography) and one for Louise Wedding Photography (weddings). 

 

When I added them to Google Maps, Google set it so that one was a brand page, and one was a business profile - there can't be two businesses at the same address. 

 

Louise Rose Photography: http://plus.google.com/b/110485890713081304974/110485890713081304974/posts?gmbpt=true&hl=en-GB

 

Louise Wedding Photography: http://plus.google.com/+Louiserosephotography/posts

 

When the wedding profile is open, it shows as Louise Wedding Photography, but in the URL it still says louiserosephotography. 

 

If I google Louise Rose Photography, the search result is for the Louise Wedding Photography Google+ page! 

 

I need the two profiles completely separated. 

 

How can I correct these issues?

@Louise D

 

Sorry Louise

 

I can't replicate this.

 

I get your business "Louise Wedding Photography" in G+ and in GMaps and with GoogleSearch alwaus with the website "http://www.louiseweddingphotography.com/"


Can you provide a screenshot or link showing "Louise Wedding Photography"  coming with http://www.louiserosephotography.com ?

Hi Helmut

Sure, here's a screenshot showing the Google search results on my phone, having googled Louise Rose Photography: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lsyg23d2aqpj2nw/IMG_5796.jpg?dl=0

And here's a screenshot showing the posts on the Louise Wedding Photography G+ page with louiserosephotography in the URL: https://www.dropbox.com/s/djldhqbo2hxz4bh/Screen%20Shot%202016-06-22%20at%2019.27.48.png?dl=0

Thanks!

sorry Louise I mistakenly misread your problem.

Thought you get the wrong website for the  "Louise Wedding Photography" GoogleSearch instead the correct  website "http://www.louiseweddingphotography.com/"

 

I now understand (and can replicate it on my German end too) you get on a search for "Louise Rose  Photography" the listing  "Louise Wedding Photography".

 

But this is no miracle as  https://plus.google.com/110485890713081304974/about isn't yet tied to GMaps (anymore???)

 

Have you verified it already and is this visible in your dahsboard

 

I guess you can't get the "Rose photography" properly verified as it comes with the same phone number as the "Wedding Photography"

Thanks Helmut - I recently changed the business address, I guess it's still being verified.

The address is showing correctly in the 'contact info' section of my dashboard, but I can't see where to verify the address - this is for a brand page.

Both were previously verified, even with the same phone number.

having the same phone number for two "businesses" - even in case they have
different addresses will likely cause one of the listings not being
verified.
