Hi There!
I have a customer that runs 4 different businesses.
I would like to know if he can create 4 GMB's for each business in the same building. Every business located in a different suite in that building.
I want to make sure its ok according to google my business guideline.

Thank you

I've run into the same issue, except that they do not have separate suite numbers. They are two distinct businesses with different phone numbers and websites, yet, Google flags them as duplicates.

Google is hung up on businesses not have separate entrances. If they don't, they make it incredibly difficult to get on Google.

So these two businesses have completely different NAPW? Are you using the same suite?

Different NAPW, but no suite numbers.
Weird, how is Google even telling them apart? This sounds like it might not have to do with duplicates if all the info but the address is different?

Did Google literally flag it as a duplicate or was it merely "suspended"?

I'm working through the same issues, there is already three GMBs in our building, and I am about to add a fourth one. All the same owner, he loves his silos.... but it's just diluting his non-existent marketing spend and spreading it too thin.

I'm adding a suite number and we have our own website and toll-free number for the new venture, but seeming I create virtual tours, I can't do that here because it would be a real red flag to have the same tour on four GMBs.

I need to choose separate categories and we already have two brands listed under "Market Researcher" so not only do I have to fix that, the new entity needs a new primary category, so I am going with "Business-to-Business Service" (Thanks to Mike for the category tool Category Search )
