Simple yes or no on combining a G+ page with a Google My Business page.

I have a Google My Business page which doesn't seem to have a Google Plus counter part. Is there a way to add a Google plus page to the Google My Business (has reviews) location page? Can it be done by creating a brand account and merging or something like that? 

Thanks!

No, a brand page and a maps listing (GMB) cannot be merged. GMB and G+ are now separate. That happened October 2017.

Thanks! Most of the guides on 3rd party sites are out of date for sure. I wanted to setup a publisher page for a transferred account, but it seems you are right. Have a good one, much appreciated!

Get em while they're hot I guess lols. I suppose a brand account could still be used as a publisher page, though I'm not sure it will be too useful for a local biz.

Again, thanks!
