Hello, I'm finding it hard to find an answer and not sure the best way to solve the issue without loosing existing YouTube, posts and reviews....

 

A bit of history: Over time 2 accounts have been opened using 2 different email addresses.

The first account was set up by an outside source who no longer had the info to login and in the mean time the business moved and the info updated using a second email: formosamarinebboats@gmail.com .

 

Somehow we have 2 Google + accounts - Can you please advise the best way to have one Google + account that shows all the YouTube, posts and reviews OR should we have one google account everyone can see YouTube, posts and reviews to link to the website... Is this possible ?

 

We just need the best link to promote our business and on our new website in developement.

 

Hope you have enough information. Thank you your help.

Best Regards,

Mel

your first URL is fine and leads to your verified local listing.
The third URL is a misnamed personal profile of a user - rather then any business page.

The user should rename it to his first and family name - there is no option to merge personal G+ profiles with local pages at all.

the second URL seems to be a brand page.
There is an option to "connect" this page with the local page.
But this option is available only if both pages are owned and managed in the same dashboard

Thank you Helmut,
I've been working on this....
1. We have renamed the personal profile as you advised.
2. We have copied the posts to the second URL here:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/113946649808041221449/posts
3. We believe the second URL is connected to the local page. - let us know otherwise if you can see this.
Question: should i now delete the third URL or hide it from public view or do nothing?
Thank you so much for your help.
Cheers,
Mel

The third URL (https://plus.google.com/u/0/116066043438608959695) is for a person (its just a G+ persoanle profile) rather for oyur business.

I believe you should either delete this personal profile or rename it to the personal name of the person who created it
