    So I have a business that has 3 different subsidiary businesses contained in one.

    E.g. "Wi11iam's business" is the main business. Within that there are 3 businesses that all offer varying services/products but all from the same address.

    E.g. 1. Wi11iam's Dog Grooming
    2. Wi11iam's Phone Sales
    3. Wi11iam's Hotel

    Each business has it's own website, but share the same address and phone number. What would be the best way to list this in Google + business listings. One for all 3 businesses under the main name "wi11iam's business" or one listing for each? The problem is that the various businesses are all in different areas. But I read that Google will not allow them all under one address? What is the best way to go about doing this please.

    I can get a different telephone number for each business if need be, but I only have the one address. I read that I could add 'suite 1', 'suite 2' or something to the address?

    What would users suggest? And why isn't there a 'local SEO' section here on BHW? :)

    All separate phone numbers, and you should be good to go. Very common for businesses to be setup this way. Realtors or medical professionals for example.

    Don't bother w/ the different suites, you dont need it. It doesn't hurt, but you don't need it.

    You should be fine with multiple businesses sharing the same address.

    Yes, I've done some more research. I think I will be fine with my set up. Thanks for the tips.

    @govindaraj. This is a real business and blackhat techniques with various accounts are 100% not the way forward! If I was trying to scam Google then yeah, blackhat all the way, but it would be a big problem if I got this website delisted from Google for any reason.

    There is a local SEO section on BHW. It's right here.

    Also, I have been in the same situation, and it worked out fine for me creating separate pages with different phone numbers.

    Don't you get the duplicate address issue? And then none of them show up on Maps as a result.

    Just get dedicated numbers and you're fine
