    Google+ Local Bulk Uploads

    I have a potential client that has many locations. Is there a bulk upload method through Google+ Local yet? If so, how? If not, what is the best practice for a multiple location business with too many locations to go in individually and claim?

    Thanks.


    I looked through the forums and didn't see anything on this. If it is a re-post, I am sorry.

    re: Google+ Local Bulk Uploads

    Hi Kel, bulk has been available for a long time and was fairly recently updated.
    But oddly I don't think bulk has come up here at our forum much yet.

    Here are some resources:

    Add 10 or more listings - Places for business Help Docs

    Manage multiple locations more easily with a new tool for Google Places
    (Announcement plus a couple tutorial videos.)

    I don't deal with multi-location businesses so have never used bulk, but I'm sure some of our members have, so if you need help holler.

    Re: Google+ Local Bulk Uploads

    Thanks for the reply and info, Linda. I have handled bulk claims in the Places dashboard for clients before. I am just curious if there is/will be a way to bulk merge places pages with G+ or just bulk claim in G+? This is something I have not heard much about.

    Thanks

    Re: Google+ Local Bulk Uploads

    Ahhh...

    You said bulk through Google+ Local so I could only assume you meant Google+ Local.

    You meant bulk for G+? No such animal!

    Plus multiple locations are not supported at all as far as merging with G+.

    PLUS even single locations are not supposed to merge yet.

    Re: Google+ Local Bulk Uploads

    I am refraining... Although, the new page layouts look great. I hope there is an easy way to transfer multi-location businesses when the bugs are worked out. Thanks for the help, Linda.

    Ya I think everything will be really cool once we cross the finish line, but I'm not sure what yard line we are at right now. Afraid we have a ways to go before the fat lady sings!
