Multiple Businesses, Same Address - Google Maps SEO issue?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Is it true that multiple businesses verified at the same address will affect SEO for each business? Will only one pop up? Or would it be recommended that each business use a slightly different address? ie. use a Suite # or something. Please, advise. Thanks for anything!

Hi @Elizabeth B

 

Not really, if they are separate businesses, with own tel number.

 

However in the real world they would have a suite or office or floor, you would not have 10 businesses at 1 address in the same room.

 

So, it would be ideal to have a differentiator, but if not, it wont be a problem.

 

PS: The business page you are referring to is a "ghost page" and unverified which means it is not visible in search or maps: https://plus.google.com/111542017373421248574/about

 

What Message is Google displaying in your business page admin area ?

Thanks, Tim. The google+ page I listed is for the client of mine that I have yet to verify because I didn't want to interfere with the other business listed at the same address. Your answer was helpful, thanks - I think I can proceed with the verification now with confidence. Thanks again!

Hi @Elizabeth B,

 

Did the verification process go smoothly? 

 

I have a similar situation, hoping not to interfere with an already verified business at the same location, and would appreciate knowing if this worked out well for you. Thanks!
