Best way to Merge/Remove Duplicate profiles now?

Hi,

I am working at a marketing agency taking care of client Google My Business profiles among many other things. We have now tried for a very long time report different profiles as duplicates but that does not always seem like it is not working in many scenarios.

 

I have made a small list of client profiles with the verified one and the duplicate(s) that I would need help and/or guidelines on where to turn in order to make a safe and complete merge or removal of those profiles. As far as I know we can not do anything except reporting it here to you guys when our clients are not sure if they administrate the duplicate either, is there other ways to go or to know who to contact in order to get a profile merged or removed of not possible to merge?


Here is a part of the list of clients we need to help organise and merge/remove:

 

Schröder & Busch Immobilien

Now this could be brand profiles in there also but with the new GMB interfere I do not recognise them.

 

With some of the profiles I have had success in map maker to report 2 verified duplicates but that does not happen ofter that they have 2 verified profiles. I will also try to contact GoogleMyBiz support at Twitter and Facebook and submit feedback on the duplicated pages.

 

Thanks ahead and I appreciate it very much any help we can get that simplify our work.

 

Best Regards,

Joakim Isaksson

I'm pretty busy and because of this I just took a look onto the provided URLs of the  two businesses 

Schröder & Busch Immobilien

and

 

meinHotel GmbH Nl. Airport Hostel

in case the mentioned "duplicates" (being in fact unverified or not yet verified local pages) this are not to consider as Duplicates.

 

But in case you or  your clients like to get rid of the "duplictas" this would be possible only by the owner of the pages through their dashbaord.

Google will by no means decover the credentials of the page owner managing the pages in question

Alright, thanks for the correction. So the ones who is not verified have no negative impact on the real & verified profiles then? Even if it got the same NAP+W?
