    Question Change Google Profile associated with Google Local Place?

    Is it possible to "unclaim" (former employee) a business listing on Google Local and claim it with another profile (the actual owners)? I have the login information for both Google accounts.

    Re: Change Google Profile associated with Google Local Place?

    If you are talking about removing a listing from the Google Places dashboard, it's pretty easy.

    To remove from the old account, click "delete" on the listing from the dashboard and then select "Remove this listing from my Google Places account."


    Make sure you strip down the old listing (down to it's NAP + 1 category).

    I would claim and verify the listing in the new account before you strip and remove from the old account. Some may disagree with this but I look at it as damage control.

    NOTE: Claiming in a new account can have some negative impacts on the listing:

    • Pictures will probably go AWOL for a month or so
    • Possible ranking drop
    • Possible hidden "dings" on the new account


    Hope this helps.

    In fact new listings sometimes take a week before they show at all
    and 6 - 8 weeks before they even start to rank.


    Plus you can lose all reviews because it's a new CID. They could at some point re-attach if NAP is identical but no guarantees.

    Thanks for the info. I think I'm going to leave this account right where it is. There are some reviews and images. She's not hitting it out of the ballpark but there probably isn't a huge detriment to leaving the account as is, right?

    If you have the option of NOT moving it than you are best to just leave it where it is
