We are a small business with 2 locations with plans to add more in the future (hopefully).

Tried to add address of the second location but that turns out to not be possible. Followed advice to create a separate google+ page for the second location instead. After going through the initial process of waiting for the postcard and verifying the location etc, we had to wait for the Google to do the next step of verification. That was last week. I just checked today and our second location is now marked as a duplicate of our first and is unpublished.

 

Long story short, what do I need to do to have a second (and/or multiple) locations published for our customers to see?

different locations using the same phone numbers are considered as duplicates by Googles GMB-algos

@Helmut Geissler,

 

Thanks for the reply. Will make some changes. Would I have to remove and recreate the G+ page again to add the second location?

it depends what you are trying to change for what listing

 

However don't use the same phone number for two locations.

Helmut,

Apologies for late reply. It was a public holiday where I am and everything was shut down for the long weekend.

 

Thanks for your replies and help.

Any fix yet to the hundreds of Business that have multiple locations and that use the same 800 number, same website!!  This isn't rocket science folks.  Please pass this along to senior staff

I have searched and searched for the answer and all I see are business owners that are also frustrated with how to get a second locations listed and verified.  Is there hope for an easy solution?  One of my locations has been verified for several years, and I want to simply add a new location to an existing business page.  I am holding up working with AD words till this is resolved.  Thanks,

again:

each bsuiness location needs its own GoogleMyBusiness listing - created through https://business.google.com/add/info

What the problem to use this path for You @valerie s ?
