Hi, I have two google brand pages. A verified and a non-verified brand page.

 

I setup my unverified page first and in my "About me" section I added links to my LinkedIn page, my realtor.com page, and my facebook and other social media pages. Here is a screen shot:

Now my verified page looks like this:

verified links.jpg

The big question is why can't I add my social links to my verified page? I was going to delete my unverified page but now I want to make sure everything looks like the unverified page. Your help is appreciated!

Hello, @Helmut Geissler.

 

Thank you for your reply. Would you be so kind as to explain a little more?

 

Are you saying that my verified page is allowed to only have one link to my business website, or am I on the wrong page to change the links on my brand page?

Yes Paula I said and am saying:

https://plus.google.com/110393279195449284601 is no brand page but it is a verlied local pages.

And for verified local pages you can have just ONE website shown up as your website

No other websites are linkable by you in and through your GoogleMyBusiness dahboard

The difference between a verified local page and a brand page is the verified badge, verified perks (local listing ect.), and the loss of extra links. Would I be correct in that statement? 

 

So I have a verified local page and an unverified local page. Would there be any reason to keep the unverified brand page?

 

On my local listing page allows for  google plus presence, and photos, and the ability to post updates just like a brand account. What is the difference?

 

Thank you for your help @Helmut Geissler! I think these are my last questions.

@Paula M

 

the main difference between both typs of pages is this:

 

Local listings can shown up on GMaps whil brand pages don't - never do!

 

Whether or not you like to keep both typs depends on the good reasons having a brand pages for "social media" purposes.

 

But you can consider connect both pages
