Add multiple locations using bulk upload spreadsheet

We are in the process of adding all our business locations to Google. We have over 200 that are missing from our Google MY Business interface. Is it possible to add all of these using the Bulk upload spreadsheet ? Do we have to request for a bulk verification when adding these locations?

Yes it is possible (and recommended) to use the Bulk upload spreadsheet to upload and verify all locations of one business.

Can you do the bulk upload for businesses that have already been claimed by previous management? For example I work for an apartment management company that manages 70 apartment complexes. Half of the locations have been claimed before and half exist but have never been claimed. Thank you!

Hi @Diane S,

 

Definitely do not re-submit all 70 locations in bulk as you risk creating duplicate listings for the already verified listings.

 

The best approach is to request transfer of ownership for the verified listings to your management team, and bulk verify the non-verified listings. 

 

This article will help you in case you can't get in touch with the former contact or group that verified the listings: https://support.google.com/business/answer/4566671#cant

 

If you do not want to hack it on your own and save time, my company specializes in this and we can assist if you need more formal and to expedite the verification.

Hi Everyone,

 

I am new to Google Business but I want to take control of our 41 retail locations so I can update our info, hours, etc.   I tried to do the bulk upload but it did not find most of the listings.  Should the bulk upload include the data that is already on the list (which contains errors) or the data that I know it should be?   And has anyone had issues with the closing time switching from PM to AM even though they used the correct time format?  This causes an error in the location because the closing time is before the opening time.  

 

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Markus
