I have two G+ profiles. Which one should I delete? Without disrupting the other? 

I have two:

https://plus.google.com/+Katraffik

and this one with the long url - 

https://plus.google.com/b/108956374577009741061/+Katraffik?pageId=108956374577009741061

 

thanks in advance for your support!

1- They are NOT different pages, they are just different URLs for the same page.

2- https://plus.google.com/108956374577009741061 redirects to https://plus.google.com/+Katraffik/posts 

3- your G+ page account and +Katraffik is your "custom URL" that Google assigned to the page

4- To keep things simple just use https://plus.google.com/+Katraffik/ all the time. 

5- Because this is just a URL difference, if you delete the Page you will be deleting both of them

 

As proof of the above I would offer up this search

https://plus.google.com/s/Katraffik%20Digital%20Marketing/people

 

If there were two pages, they would show on this search.

They are the same profile and you have just used different URLS to access them.

Thanks Mike! 

I would like to keep things simple and clean. I want to delete the one with the long url. But I am not sure if that is going to also delete the brand account or the profile with the short url.
