    Exclamation Service Business and Verified G+ Business Page

    so what do you do in this situation

    Hi Forum

    We have a business that services people at there home

    We have 2 Google profiles.

    One profile has all our reviews and this sits on my personal account.This account has a google places verified listing. Italso has a google+ business page that has not yet been verified.

    https://plus.google.com/101940183754312568623/about?hl=en%20

    The other account is has a verified Google+ business page and hosts some of our blogs and has some communities.

    https://plus.google.com/u/1/b/104285430991064845164/104285430991064845164/posts


    My question is, which account should i be uploading videos to so i can link them back to our website?

    Which account should we be using for google.


    Should i verify the Google+ account under our main account with reviews? I read somewhere, that if you have a business that services people at there address,you should not link the Google+ account with the places account. Is this true?

    what should i do???

    Sorry, only have time to answer your first question.

    The video feature in Google Places/G+ Local is disabled and the vids don't show live. So you want to upload them to your G+ Business page.

    Colan is right on the Q above the Place page or G+ Local does not support video.

    And you are correct YOU CAN'T verify G+ now. They will suspend of delete you if you do.

    So moving forward, would you suggest having a unverified Google+ listing,under the google places SAB so you unify your business info. or we do you send people to view your social updates etc. I hope i made sense

    Re: Service Business and Verified G+ Business Page

    You just need to leave the pages separate. Don't merge. Don't verify the G+ page.

    Re: Service Business and Verified G+ Business Page

    No way to build community on a Place page. All that page has is reviews.

    G+ Business page is the only place to build community because it has posts and circles.

    Or maybe I didn't understand your Q?

    Re: Service Business and Verified G+ Business Page

    So sorry but I am totally booked and only do consulting for other consultants and marketing agencies. My main computer just died so I'm even more booked than usual trying to get new computer set up so I can catch up with my existing clients.

    Email me, in subject give me your user name here at the forum and link to this thread so I don't have to find it. And I'll refer you to one of the consultants I've trained and refer out to.
