So my question is rather convoluted, but please bear with me. I am consulting with a small company and we are trying to restructure their media presence. As it turns out, they have five Google+ accounts, four of which are inaccessible for one reason or another. The only alternative for eliminating these accounts that I see is to report them. Is this my only option? Is there a more efficient way I can consolidate and close these accounts? Expedient answers are much appreciated.

Hi Katherine, the URL that you described as the correct one, is actually a personal profile page. It is not meant to be a business page. The first two of the four urls are both verified local listings and the ones that you want to use to represent the business. The third URL is a non verified page also known as a ghost page, and the fourth URL won't open for me. If the two verified pages are for the same business, I would suggest contacting Google my business support to have them merged and to get control of the merged end results page. https://support.google.com/business/contactflow
