GMB locations and PlaceID associations

I've found that we have 2 locations in GMB associated with the same PlaceID and that was causing an error on our side when extracting the interactions. Is it normal to have two GMB locations associated to the same PlaceID?

 

One of them is not verified yet. I would like to know if we verify both locations they can continue beeing associated to the same PlaceID. Can you confirm me this, please?

@David R

I don't believe ONE placeID is asscioted to two different GMB listings

 

YOu should provide Links to the two differen GMB listings and I will tell you the (for sure) different PlaceIDs

Well,

 

That's the response when calling to our GMB account /locations endpoint. As you can see we have only 2 locations and both have the same PlaceID associated:

Both have the same placeID, but only one has mapsUrl.

Yep and only the one with mapsurl is the one we can see manage and review:

 

http://search.google.com/local/writereview?placeid=ChIJq6oW4usoQg0RV3FWUx-VkpQ

 

its this one https://maps.google.com/maps?cid=10705783225987789143

 

Means the other (first) entry in your list (accounts/107085059118184764233/locations/1490997812373927804) doesn't refer to any  real listing on Google or GMaps.

 

But have to admit it looks strange.

Since one is unverified, it remains connected to the similar location of the same place ID. If I'm reading the response right, you have a location in the same place with the same phone number. 

 

GMB will ultimately mark these as duplicates. What's the difference between the two listings? I believe during verification you can force Google to think these should be separate locations.

So, can you confirm that only ONE verified GMB location can be associated to the same PlaceID?

there is btw an other unverifed  restaurant in the same area of Madrid - with the same  name: https://goo.gl/maps/UvfL9JdmSsk

And it got a different PlaceID: ChIJs68l05EoQg0RJxMt_cF8viM

Well, we will try to claim it and delete it!

 

At least does not have the same PlaceID :)

the listing I provided for the calle Genoveva doesn't exist there?

If so it doesn't make any sense to claim it as you can't delete it anyway after you claimed it.

After taking  a look onto the specific  website I told Google it never existed at this address.

Guessing it will disappear very soon (or is already) @David R
