    I own a mobile locksmith company and I have one google map listing and I am aware that if you do not have a storefront then you can only have one google map listing. However it's pretty important that I get another one, is there anyway around it? I know ups mailboxes are banned from google now, I was looking into renting some cheap office spaces but if there is another way that I would be interested. thanks.

    That reminded me of something I saw last year. I was researching virtual office spaces when I noticed something peculiar in Google Maps. The company selling the virtual office space was registering addresses in Google Maps that didn't exist in my town or the towns around it (I'm assuming they were using their own service, although I'm unsure how virtual offices work). I never looked into this further, but perhaps that information will be of some use to you.

    I've heard of this working, actually. A few months back a colleague of mine bought from something called Mailbox Forwarding, I think it was called. He was able to have multiple listings afterward.

    Update: Page is suspended, I used my home address she's like is this a business location I'm like yeah, shes like well it looks like it's a home on the maps I'm like it is I serve customers here though lol. So she's like you need proper signage on your front yard and then it should be ok, but I don't want to do that I need another alternative. I guess office space idk.

    Wait, who told you that and what country do you live in? When I created my first Google Maps listing for my home-based business, they sent me the verification card with the pin on it and I was able to verify it without any problems.

    I'm in the U.S, problem is I already have a listing where I only serve customers at there location so this is my second listing and they want it to actually be a store. They did say if I get signage and put it somewhere in the front of my house I should be good with this second listing.

    Ah, that's interesting. Did they state any other requirements?

    You'll have to check with your city hall about putting up signs in front of your house if you decide on going that route. Where I live in Riverside county, they're pretty strict about it and will fine you if you serve your customers inside your actual house and for putting up signs advertising your business on your property (or something like that, I would have to read the home occupation permit again).

    I tried to keep x1 Google account for private and a few for work etc, looks like its owners and editors now.

    Now the Google plus page I'd spend years getting views likes comments etc, ive no idea which account is 100% linked to it, seems such a shame to start over ya know.

    I'll have a coffee and a good look at the vid, if i find something useful, ill update k
