    Re: How To Delete a G+ local page

    Hi Laurie,

    I just want to make sure I know which page you are talking about before I advise. Are you referring to a G+ Local page or a G+ Business page?

    Can you post a link to the listing? No worries if you can't

    Colan,

    Here's the link: https://plus.google.com/117607670399...artnerid=lolnd - that's a local page, isn't it?

    Thanks!
    You could certainly delete the page from Google maps in your dashboard. I don't know what you mean with deleting the page but not your profile.

    That is a pure G+ Local page. I'm also curious, what do you mean by delete the page, but not the profile?

    Why do you want to get rid of that page? Is it for an old address?

    Re: How To Delete a G+ local page

    I want to delete it because we listed it with a UPS address and the business is actually switching over to another name anyway. I don't want Google to delete us, so I want to do it. I did just find where to delete it from maps - is that all I need to do?

    Re: How To Delete a G+ local page

    Odd, I can't find the listing in Map Maker and it's not allowing me to access the Report a Problem feature for the listing. I wonder if it's already been flagged.

    First of all, remove it from the Places Account which I think you have already completed.

    I was thinking the best bet would be to report it as "Place Does Not Exist or is Private" via Report a Problem right from the listing. Or possibly reporting as closed...

    Andrew has really good insight into matters like this. Hopefully he will stop by.

    Re: How To Delete a G+ local page

    If i understand the question correctly,

    You can delete the G+ Local page but not the entire account by simply logging into your Google+ account --> Profile --> Pages tab (in the left sidebar) --> find your page and click the dropdown arrrow, select "Settings" --> scroll to the bottom, and select delete this page/account --> confirm the deletion and you should be finished.

    That would be the way to delete a G+ Business page from a G+ Profile. The listing that Laurie linked to is a G+ Local page which resides in the Google Places Dashboard.

    Re: How To Delete a G+ local page

    ahh, another case where having 4 names for almost the same thing can be confusing. my apologies.

    Also, based on Joel H. documentation, I believe the listing is a "Google business listing" and not a "Local Google+ page"
