Trying to find Primary Owner

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I created a GMB listing 5 years ago


I then added my personal gmail as an Invited Owner


I now want to get rid of the Primary owner or transfer ownership to me at my personal gmail


However, I am sure you've heard this before, I can remember the original email address I create the listing with, in order to be able to log in and transfer


I've tried every email I've ever created I think, but for some reason I must have used something different that I cant remember to create this business listing


Is there anyway to find out what this was?

Hi  @Mac M


There is no  dedicated methodto identify the  Accunt of  theactualprimary ownere of any listing.

Using this  prcedure


Google willshow you th first two characters of thaccount.

But even in  case  this doesn'thelp you  to identify the account ofth primary owner then just follow up th  steps.

You can then manage to get the ownership transferred to your  gmail account.
