Multiple brands within mutliple locations

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We are working with a car dealership that acquires multiple different car dealerships in cities across the US, however, they keep their name because usually it is well known in the local community.

 

I am wondering if there is a way that we can bulk verify this account even though it has different brands in the account or will we have to individually verify each of the locations (there are 150 locations).

 

Thanks!

Do all the dealerships keep their own URL too? 

 

 

Technically speaking, when doing bulk verification, all locations should share the same URL. 

 

You might be able to get away with having a directory of all the locations on a single domain, get the account verified, then change the URLs in bulk.

 

However, it is risky, if you want to keep the locations verified. Because, if Google decides that the changes are suspect, then they'll de-verify the entire account. The listings probably won't disappear, but you won't have control over them or access to their metrics.
