    Find CID in Google+ Listing

    I am trying to find the CID number in a Google+ listing. Can anyone send me in the right direction for the latest method that works?

    Thank you,

    Barry

    Re: Find CID in Google+ Listing

    Didn't work. Here's the situation.

    A "friend" created a Google My Business listing for the business owner who knew nothing about SEO in 2014. The friend will not transfer it to the rightful owner. I have the CID of the existing listing.

    So, we created a new listing with the owner, but Google says we have a duplicate listing. Correct! Argh!

    My thought is to contact Google Support and tell them the situation. I know they've heard it many times before where the person who owns the listing won't give it up.

    Suggestions on other ideas would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Barry

    You will probably need to go through support to gain control of it and then contact GMB support through either Twitter or FB.

    Re: Find CID in Google+ Listing

    You can try these tools:

    https://developers.google.com/places/place-id
    Search for the business then click on "View on Google Maps". You will get the CID on the url.

    or

    https://www.grade.us/home/labs/googl...link-generator
    Search by business name and zip code, once you find your business, click "Continue".

    You will get all information there.

    Cheers!
