    Google Bulk Locations

    So, had a franchise approach me about listing their 500+ locations on GMB. I have a few questions:

    1) I haven't done Google bulk loading before, what do I need to know? Also, what do I need to know concerning doing 500+ locations?

    2) Is verification done the same way by phone or will they automatically verify?

    3) How long would this process take? Is it instant?

    4) Any other things you think I should know.

    Thanks all!

    Re: Google Bulk Locations

    Hi Joshua,

    We haven't done too many bulk uploads but when we do we always try to do a bulk verification outlined here - https://support.google.com/business/.../4490296?hl=en

    There is a ton of great material at the help center for GMBL.

    From my observations, Dan Liebson seems to have a ton of experience with bulk and he is probably a great resource to reach out to.

    Re: Google Bulk Locations

    Thanks for replying Colan.

    Quick question: in the bulk dashboard, can you hide addresses?

    Re: Google Bulk Locations

    I don't believe bulk is currently available for SAB's.

    Re: Google Bulk Locations

    I concur with Colan. I don't think it's available for SABs either.

    Re: Google Bulk Locations

    Not sure if this gives the answer you're looking for, but thought I'd pass it along;

    https://support.google.com/business/answer/6104075

    From there, it says if you want to manage multiple locations you should use the Google My Business Locations, and then in the breakdown columns, it says "not possible to hide the address for locations that are bulk verified".

    Re: Google Bulk Locations

    Awesome, thanks guys!

    Anyone know if there's a reason behind this? Or have they just not added that feature in yet?

    Re: Google Bulk Locations

    I agree with everyone. Google has also told us directly GMB Locations is not available for SABs.
    I believe due to spam and so many questionable locations for many of the industries.
