Mass deleting incorrect Local G+ pages

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

In the past some people have created LOCAL Google plus pages for our E-Commerce Website, which we want to get rid of, as they make us show up in the search results (specifically the Knowledge Graph) as a local business with a physical address, which is bad for SEO and CX.

We have successfully gained ownership of and closed some LOCAL pages, but there are still some left.

Do you know of a way to  mass close pages, without having to go through the steps of manually claiming and closing each Local Google+ page?

Thanks in advance,
Jon

Hi @Jonathan P

 

There's no way to mass close pages at the user end. 

 

You will need to contact Google+ support via https://support.google.com/business/contactflow to get assistance in removing all the incorrect Local pages (including the ones you've already closed) from the database.

 

if they don't remove the closed listings at their end, then when people search for your business online, those closed listings will still show, making it appear as if you've shut up shop.

my two cents @PriyaC to solve the problem of  @Jonathan Pin 

In case Jonathan would provide a  complete list of the bad local pages and any contact info to a responsible manager of the company in question we could try escalating this infoomation to our CM here.

I'm pretty sure she would pass along the info to the Spam team.

They can take dowen the unwantd local pages

 

What do you thing?

That's a great idea @Helmut Geissler!

 

@Jonathan P are you able to provide us with a list of the bad pages?

@Jonathan P & @PriyaC

 

I thought about providing the contact info of any "responsible" person in your company able to confirm that your business is a pure online business and not having any local businesses or shops at the listed locations.

It should be a person that could be contacted by Googles spam team - just in case the spam team needs contacting such a representative of your company
