    Merging G+ Places for Multiple Locations

    Hi
    What is the consensus re merging g+ with g places currently?
    Have a client with 3 verified places listings in one main google account. Then 3 separate g+ pages in different accounts. We really want a main central listing to really push and get reviews etc.
    Comments?
    thx
    Carl

    Re: Merging G+ Places for Multiple Locations

    There is a major update. Google is auto-upgrading everyone to Google+.

    Google says WAIT. So not set up G+ or merge.

    "We really want a main central listing to really push and get reviews etc.'

    That does not make sense and could not work anyway.

    Reviews are on each LOCATION page. No way to merge 3 locations into one page, nor would you want to.

    Re: Merging G+ Places for Multiple Locations

    Thx Linda boy i hate waiting, this is holding up our progress!! Yes we will be keeping the 3 locations, we are keen to garner reviews but to which the old g places or the new g+ url is the dilemna. Would you suggest we continue to get reviews for the main old g places listing?

    Sounds like there is confusion. Let's think about just a single location for now to simplify.

    If you have 2 separate pages for a location: The Place page is the only one that can have reviews. The G+ pages have no reviews.

    OR you merged the 2. But in that case it would be a single page. There would not be your either/or question about where to get the reviews. There would not be separate pages - just one page per location.

    So I'm confused about your questions.

    You should maybe give me links to the pages for just ONE location. So I can take a look at what you have going on. Sounds like something is maybe off or there is just confusion which is understandable.

    One more thought, based on thoughts from the AWESOME Local SEO Myths post (Top Local SEO Myths | LocalVisibilitySystem.com), you might want to channel some of the review garnering efforts to other sources during this "waiting" period.
