Must have a Google+ page for each location and easy verification?

Hi Community -- 

 

When add locations, part of the process is to publish a Google+ page.  Is a G+ page required for each location? How could a brand consolidate upkeep for so many pages?  

 

Also, as part of the verification process, there is a postcard sent to each location. My client has 20+ global offices, and I'm hoping there's a way to verify that is easier.

 

I appreciate any help!

Nathan

Businesses having more then ten locations should use their  Google My Business Locations tool

But I beleive this isn't applicable if the locations are not for one country but spreaded over the planet.

 

In that case the business would better do creating for each country their country specific locations through Google My Business

Hi Helmut -- appreciate the response!

I'm leveraging the Google My Business tool that I walked through with our Google rep. I do have the option to add global locations into the tool.

We're ideally looking for a central location to edit office information/hours, although we're not planning to use local Google+ pages for each market.

I'm very rarely using their Google My Business Locations tool.
because of htis I wasn't sure you can submit location spreaded over the world.
But if you can (and beleiving you now) - you then also can get them verified in a centralized manner.
And editing is possible later by editing and resubmitting the bulk feed
