Multiple Businesses, Same Address - Google Maps SEO issue?

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:

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!
