    2 locations in the same city

    I would like to know what are you guys suggesting to do if i have 2 locations in the same city.
    Would you suggest to create landing page to each location? or there is another way you recommend?

    Hi Omer,

    Yes, you can have a separate GMB page for each physical business location. And the best practice around location pages in your website is to have a different page, optimized for each location.

    Re: 2 locations in the same city

    Thank you for the clear answer Colan.
    Is there any recommendation how to target 2 locations in the same city?
    Because the keywords are the same.

    Re: 2 locations in the same city

    Google likely will only rank one of the pages if they are the same business targeting the same categories. Unless there is little to no competition. Of course, with search results being so location of searcher specific, it really just depends.

    For GMB, if only one ranks, I would focus most of my optimization efforts on that one.

    Again, it really depends on the details.

    Re: 2 locations in the same city

    Colan, does this also apply to SMB's? I thought for some reason you were only supposed to have one GMB page per city if you're a SMB even if you have multiple physical locations? Is this accurate?

    Re: 2 locations in the same city

    Hey Josh, the guidelines allow multiple locations per city. As long as they are legit physical locations. Starbucks is a good example of this.

    Yikes, I meant to say "SAB's" not "SMB". Apologies!

    Does that change anything?

    Re: 2 locations in the same city

    Hi Josh, I thought that's what you meant

    Same guideline applies. One listing per physical location. Of course, SAB's will come under heavier scrutiny when trying to verify the second location since it isn't common for an SAB to need multiple physical locations in one city. It comes down to being able to prove that these physical locations are legit, registered business locations.

    Let's get a second opinion from Joy just to be safe.
