Will Google + profile duplicate with Google My Business Page?

Hi,

 

We have this 2 verified listings/ Google My Business listings with different addresses: 

a. EnviroShop " 253 High St, Northcote VIC 3070, Australia

b. EnviroShop " 49 Lyons Street, Newstead VIC 3462, Australia

 
 

 

Will having a google + profile under these accounts create duplicate listings in Google Search engine?

 

I asked because when I search using my own google + profile, I discovered 6 different Google + pages (including 1 under different company with the same name).

1. https://plus.google.com/110159131738422505633/ (Newstead branch)

2. https://plus.google.com/107217922806165717295/ (Northcote)

3. https://plus.google.com/106270079473810919613/ (youtube account)

4. https://plus.google.com/115597995601409104975/

5. https://plus.google.com/102778811659969368534/

 

I planned to remove number 4 & 5 since I think this can make duplicate listings. But the problem is I don't have access for these. When I tried to searching in Google My Business account, the last 2 google profiles dont appear in seach suggestions. So, I cant make request any admin rights.

 

Please advise.

 

Cheers,

4# & 5# shouldn't anyhow impact results on your local listings.

 

And yes you can't delete 4# & 5# unless having it's credentials.

Hi Gerlie,

 

If you don't have access to 4 and 5, there isn't a way to delete them. But don't worry, they aren't connected to Google Maps and won't have any impact on the main proper listings.

 

As for #3. That is a brand page. You can continue to use it. But my suggestion would be to use the two main pages only. They can support the videos, as well as reviews, rank in Google Maps etc.

 

Does this make sense?

Oh, okay, thank you guys for the response.

 

but I guess we still need to delete #4& 5 just to straight things up. But if we can't regain any access to it, then at least I know it will not make any impact somehow.

 

As for the #3, what I should do is to transfer ownership of this youtube channel and google page to one of our verified accounts right?

Yes, that's correct.
