Hi,

So, FYI... in not knowing enough about how Google 'business accounts' work in terms of managing multiple Google My Business pages... I got 14 listings verified in a 'non-business' account... then, in order to manage them with the 'business' account, I thought I had to export and import from one to another.

I had to then remove the imported listings from that business account, as I see that they were just causing duplicate listings. I should have transferred ownership from the non-business to the business account instead.

Also, when removing the duplicate listings, the dashboard mentions that you are deleting the account. You aren't deleting any Google Account really, you are just actually deleting the duplicate page you created.
