Hi,

 

My business details

 

simplyphotobooths.co.uk 

86A The Broadway, DY8 3HT

07445466977

As you can see I have 3 google+ pages under my profile.- All linked to my website.

 

Will this adversely affect my ranking in google at all ....... should I only have one google + business page?

 

Thanks

Hm... Those three things you linked all point to a brand page. Brand pages don't do anything for rankings one way or the other, it's totally fine to have an actual GMB (google my business) page, and some brand pages that all link to the same site. It's only multiple GMB profiles that'll cause you problems. 

While none of your three links sent me to an actual GMB page, I did find this page:
https://plus.google.com/105017869992704177555

Is that one of the ones you were meaning? You've got some pretty serious naming violations there. Check this out:

What's your actual business name? If it's "Simply Photobooths" that's the name you need to be using. Using your website and geographic terms in the name field can get your account knocked for spam. 

Also, I checked street view, and it looks like you're in a residential neighborhood to me, but I'm not sure. Can people drop in during business hours at that address, or do they just call you and you come to them? If people can't actually visit you at your location, you need to be a service area business and have your address hidden. 

Other than that though, yeah... a brand page that also links to your site doesn't cause problems.

Hi James,

Yes https://plus.google.com/105017869992704177555 is my business page. ( cut 'n' paste error )

Thanks for the heads up regarding website and geographic terms in the GMB name field - I wasn't aware of those guidelines. - I'll make changes now.

You're right we are based in a residential area. Customers don;t visit us - we provide services at venues booked by the, How do I change to a service area business?

Regards,
