Need a Google+ page removed

Hi,

 

I work for a company called HPD Software Ltd and we have a Google+ page set up (HPD Software is the Google+ page page, URL is https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/117928887318481150343/117928887318481150343).  A previous employee, we don't know who, set up a Google+ page for HPD Software UK.  We want the HPD Software UK page disabled as we don't use it, but we don't know who set it up.

 

Our business address is:

Dial House

2 Burston Road,

Putney, London SW15 6AR

United Kingdom

 

Phone:  +44 (0)20 8780 6800

 

The link for the HPD Software UK listing is:  https://plus.google.com/103703424609810234951

Hi @Patrick D

 

Just to clarify, this is a Brand Page

https://plus.google.com/u/0/117928887318481150343/about

 

It is not visible in search or knowledge panel.

 

This one you say, you want removed is a Business page, that appears in search and knowledge panel.

https://plus.google.com/103703424609810234951/about

 

The business page has been verified, so it is not a case of just removing. Because it has been verified, you will need to apply for ownership of the page.

 

Then once ownership transferred you can then delete the business page from account.

 

Claiming ownership:

Once you have requested ownership, wait 7 days before contacting business support to help with transfer.

Thanks for this.

 

If I want to make my brand page (the page that I will be keeping) a business page as well, how would I go about it?

Hi @Patrick D

 

You would have to create a business page and then merge them.

However, you wont be able to create and verify a business page because that one already exists and is verified.

 

So you still need to claim ownership of the other business page. When it is your account, then you can merge the two.
