2 seperate businesses at same address: checking to see if info I found here is still accurate

Hi,

Full Business name(s): Gate Healing, PLLC, and the other seperate one: Success Strategies

Address: 3355 Bee Caves Rd, #505, Austin, Tx 78746

Phone: 512-771-7621 (gate healing), 512329-8088 (success strategies)

Map: Gate: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Gate+Healing,+PLLC/@30.2742645,-97.8031681,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0...

Map: Success: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Success+Strategies+Unlimited/@30.274431,-97.8024333,15z/data=!4m2!...

Like some other folks, I office share with a different company. The USPS does not split our suite into a, b and c. . . it's just #505.

 

While we are in the same industry we practice completely different methods (she's hyphotherapy, I'm traditional talk therapy). We are both incorporated as entirely seperate, at meet all of this criteria listed in another post here:

  1. The two companies must have different brands
  2. The two companies must have a different phone number   
  3. The two companies must have different staff    
  4. Use separate domain-based emails to own / claim / manage the listings
  5. Both businesses have independent online profiles    
  6. Separate branding on the premises.    

And our door is clearly marked with totally seperate companies. Our business are staffed by completely different staff during normal operating hours. We each have our own furniture etc.

 

Is the above still accurate for being able to list 2 seperate companies at the same address?

You shouldn't have any problems with this at all. Practitioner listings are completely allowed and that's not even really the case for you.

 

For example a medical clinic can have a listing for the clinic itself plus all the individual doctors that work there. They don't even need to have a unique phone numbers or domain. A problem they might run into though is some of the listings being filtered out due to the possum algorithm. 

 

In your case it's actually totally separate businesses with different business categories so you're not even at risk for filtering. I can't see any issues for you here

Hi Patrick,

 

Thanks for the response. I don't think this should impact us either, but from what I understand, it may well be penalizing us anyway. We actually are in the same business category (I think . . . we are both Mental Health), but everything else is totally different separate. 

 

I've seen some other posts on here about folks having the same issue, likely in error that a google specialist may have fixed for them. I am hoping to hear back today. I'll keep you posted!

@Jonathan A You are completely fine!  @Patrick L as he stated you are fine.  

 

I checked both listings and they are both showing in search results, pretty far back but you are showing which means you are not being filtered by that pesky Possum!

I just spoke to a google specialist who said that we are fine. That we do need to upload a picutre of our front entrance with different branding for each company, and of our spearate inner doors that show we are in different rooms wiht their own branding on the door. Whew!
