    Question Old G+ Business Page (Local Type) and Proper Verified G+ Local Listing

    Hi folks,

    I have a few companies I'm working with that have an old business page that was created as a local type many moons ago, back when they weren't being prompted to be verified. These companies also have legit verified G+ Local listings, new ones.

    Now in the new dash, they have both listings there. Of course, one is verified, the other is not.

    What is the best way to deal with these?

    1) Delete the unverified one.
    2) Verify the old one then report a dupe so they can merge them.
    3) Something else.

    It's important to note that the verified listing is ranking well and is the only listing showing up in a maps search.

    The unverified listing is only viewable by visiting the URL directly.

    Thanks

    Hey Patrick, thanks for stopping by!

    We've been discussing the problem for awhile and how to handle.

    Please this thread and MOST IMPORTANT read link to Jade's thread in post #43.

    Since you are so active working on listings, you should subscribe to the "Google+ Local IMPORTANT" section of the forum where I always put important updates, bugs and new feature posts like that one.

    After reading that thread, let me know if you still have questions.

    Thanks, Linda
