    Can i add location or service area with the business name with multiple locations?

    So I know I have to keep the business name consistent, but what if I have different locations, can i also include the "area" with the business name? or I should keep the business name as it is, and put the correct address and phone number?

    Example: Business name is Cellphone Spot Inc. can i use Cellphone Spot Inc. West Hollywood, or it is a NO NO?

    It's a violation. Spelled out clearly in the guidelines, which all consultants should read and understand before working on client listings.

    Yeah, it's definitely against the rules. That being said, if the business name is actually Cellphone Spot Inc. West Hollywood, Google says it is fine.

    I feel it is better to build on the brand then to try and game the system and change the business names for each location.
