    Sorry for the annoying thread title.

    I have done a search on BHW but I couldn't find the answer to this question.

    I don't know much about Google places. A client has two websites, one is listed in Google places, the newer website is not.

    How can I also add the new website to Google places?

    If they are different companies just use separate suite numbers like if one is ste #2 then have the other #2A. Also make sure they have different phones.

    1 company and 1 address will only rank once, despite the number of websites he has. He'll need another address/phone/website to rank twice.

    Any simple way of doing this for the second website with fake details? Any solid way in which Google can not find out?

    Just make sure everything about the two listings is unique, see below.

    As stated above by someone else. If you want a second listing in Google Places there MUST be a unique address (a different suite number is fine) and a unique phone number. Real Estate Agents do this all the time, they have office space in the same building but use office numbers as part of the address, and their own phone number.

    Back to the original post...

    Be careful with this, you must ensure that the listings are completely unique. If Google thinks that they are connected, the two listings will be merged and or pushed down in the list.

    If the two websites are somehow related, you could add it to the original listing in the "more info" area. Just put the site name in the left hand box, and the complete URL in the right hand box. when published, there will be a link to the site.

    Wow, this is amazing.
    So in general, if I only have 1 address, i can then make it into 2-3 (to be safe).

    123 address rd. Suite #1
    123 address rd. Suite #2
    123 address rd. Suite #3

    As for phone numbers, just get a few VOIP numbers?
    Bam! I will then be able to occupy 3 spots on Google places?
