Multiple businesses in the same location

Should we submit all addresses which are already appearing correct in Google when we are submitting multiple other addresses in Google using bulk list verification method? we have more than 300 business locations but many of them are repeating as we are showing single address for multiple states/countries in website. Some of them are appearing correctly in Google but some are not.

 

Should we also submit such addresses in Google targeting same address but for different countries.

 

For example: Our Paris office is shown for more than 40 other states/countries in the EMEA region. and we want to show Paris address visible in Google when someone searches from other country/state. Should we submit this Paris address 40 times in our bulk listing with different state/country in respective fields.

Hi Kamal,
Google Local is for businesses that have a physical presence in the city/town where they are listed and deal with the customers in-person face to face, so you could not create a Local listing for those countries where the business is not physically located.

Hi @Kamal G,

 

I'm not sure that I entirely understand your question, but going to do my best to answer! I would first, recommend this article for information on editing bulk locations which should address your first question. 

 

For your second question, you should only submit one address for each location. I'm not sure what you mean by "same address but for different countries." Can you explain more, or let me know if the information provided has answered your question? 

 

Regarding the submitting the same address multiple times over, this is not recommended, as you're only able to have one page claimed and verified for each location. You should only submit the address for your Paris location, for example, once--this would then show up whenever users look for your Paris office.

 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or need more clarification.

 

Thanks,

Liz

Thanks for your response Liz. Let me explain what I mean from "same address but for different countries"
In our website, we are providing all our local addresses on one page named worldwide locations. There are some countries for which our business don't have physical address but we have provided the address of other nearby country. For example, Our office address of Paris is mentioned for more that 30 countries including Algeria, Burundi, Egypt etc. i.e. Single address (Paris address) is provided for all EMEA countries in the website worldwide locations page. or we can say company want customers of Algeria to Contact Paris office for queries or personal visits.

What I want to know is that will it be right approach if I add this Address for multiple countries in spreadsheet to be used for bulk address verification. Will Google show the address of Paris in Algeria, Egypt etc?

Hope the query is clear now :)

Hello Kamal,

 

I surely understand your concern and here is what you should do to make sure that your business page is showing up on all the countries where you have or don't have a physical location. Looking at the type of business you have I assume you you provide services and also serve customers at your Physical location if they decide to walk in.

 

As per Google My Business Policy you cannot create multiple businesses at same address however you have an option to be visible in all these countries where you do not have an option its called (Physical Location with Service Area).

 

While creating a Business Page for your Physical Location office you get an option to choose If you provide services to your customer at their location you will need to check that option and after that you will get a box to type the cities, countries you provide services you need to type all the neighboring countries where you do not have a physical address.

 

Example : Create Business Listing for your office address in Paris & in Service area type other countries like Algeria, Burundi, Egypt, etc.

 

Once you do it be assured that your business will pop up on maps when someone search's for your Business Type in any of these countries.

 

In case you have already created Business Pages for all these locations you can Log into Google My Business Dashboard > Click Manage Location>Edit Info Option>Click Address>Check I Serve customers at their location and add desired countries.

Feel free to revert in case you need any further help.

 

Thank you

Hello Renee,

 

As per Google My Business Policies you can only create/have 1 Business Page per Location/Address. However if you are running multiple business from same location then you should have different Suite #'s or Floor #'s so that Google Maps/Location Services can identify it correctly.

I guess you are getting Error "The property Review-aggregate/brand is not recognised by Google for an object of type Review-aggregate."

 

This is out of personal experience Check this out Here 

as I have also been facing this Issue and I was able to identify that my microdata was incorrect. 

 

Also refer to Google Search : https://developers.google.com/search/ 

This Link should also be helpful

 

Thank you
