    Google typically doesnt want you to have 2 listings on 1 address. But if you need help with getting Verified listings go ahead and PM me i have some solutions for you.

    The trouble is not the address so much, but the phone. Consider professionals like Realtors, Doctors, etc where same address would be very common. That is of course if all else is within guidelines. If not, then you might have some trouble. It sounds like you have two listings for the same business. I see this for lawyers sometimes, where they would create a listing for each of the practices: bankruptcy, family law, DUI, etc. This generally doesn't end too well in my experience.

    This is at least the 3rd account I have caught you with; I'm sure there are others that have been banned as well.

    Scammers don't do very well for very long on this site.

    Hi guys, since there are some people with knowledge on OP's question already active in this thread, thought I might as well ask here.

    I have a business that's already listed on Google Maps on a certain address, however, we opened new offices at another location. (While keeping the current location as well.)
    What's the best practice for this? Should I create another listing with the same name and description but just a different address? or should I create a new listing with a "fake" name and act if it's a completely different business? (although its not)

    Shot :)

    i have several clients, where we have on some 3 listings, and others 8 listings.... you need to know how to do it right so Google doesnt flip out on you...... its legal, ok with Google and can be done, but if done wrong, you are doomed .

    Generally speaking Google will only accept 1, however, there are services out there that can work around this legally.

    Nowadays you can find a lot of map listing directories which allows you to submit on them, especially if your business is brick and mortar. One thing to mention is that the approval can take up to couple of months, and it is not guaranteed that they will be approved.

    I wouldn't suggest multiple listings with the same name and number, they will get suspended.

    Only on the grounds that a business has two forward confronting showcasing brands & attempts does not make it two organizations.


    On the off chance that they are to be discrete on Google Places then they should be totally separate all over both online and off; distinctive DBAs, diverse (ideally land line) telephone numbers, diverse suites, diverse print YP promotions, distinctive postings across the web and so forth. Else you can make certain that Google will expect that they are one entity and surely merge them into one.

    Good luck!

    What Bluesteele said is right.
    Google won't like same phone number on two different business listings.

    As per my experience, Google will not allow you to list your new business in the same and the exact location, which you've already have listed another one.. You need to add some minor change in the address of new business to get listed...

    You can't list two businesses in a single location. Although getting a fake address isn't that difficult so you can try that.

    Would that really work? Wouldn't Google verify your business listing first?

    This Guy GoogleKingSolutions is a SCAMMER - BE AWARE also using the name on skype: Google King SEO Solutions.
    any person telling you he /she has a method of by pass google verification ASK for proof of creating one listing before you fall into this SCAM. I had all the red flags but i wanted to believe that there is actually a way to do it. also going to list this guy in the Shit List. with any detail i know about him so maybe it will save money to other members.
