18 distinct brands out of one location

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My company, Anton Media Group, runs 18 different brands out of the same location (newspapers). It meets the criteria to be allowed to have separate Google Business/Google+ pages. However, they keep getting flagged for duplicate locations.

 

They are all separate entities legitimately at the same location. How do I resolve this?

 

Instead of listing all 18 here, this page contains links to all 18: www.antonnews.com

Hi @Anton N

 

I am having trouble seeing how these are eligible for a Google business page.

 

After having visited 7 of the sites and checked the Contact Pages, they all fall under one business: Acton Media Group in Mineola, NY 11501 and one satellite office in Port Washington, NY 11050 

 

Those 2 can certainly have a business page, but I don't see how the other are remotely eligible.

Everything I have read indicates this is acceptable. Each title is a distinct brand within different communities with different websites and different followings.

I am asking how to resolve the 'duplicate locations' issue. Thank you.

And I am trying to help you resolve the issue, but Brands still have to meet guidelines in order to qualify for a Google business page.

Do each of these brand file their own tax returns.
