    I have a client who just opened a 2nd location and I need to optimize for 2 Google Places. I'd like to know the best way to do this. One is in Miami and the new one is in Coral Gables. The current google places page is optimized for Miami with a general url (ie: poolsupplies).

    So for Coral Gables do I:
    1) create a whole new google places page with a new email address? or a subpage on the existing places page?

    2) do I use the existing same url (poolsupplies) or get a keyword rich one (coralgablespoolsupplies) and use that on the new Google places page and then do a 301 redirect to the main site?

    Any general advice on setting up more than one google places for multiple locations for the same company would be appreciated.

    According to Google:

    You can create a new Places Page for your new business location by selecting "add another business" within your Google Places dashboard.

    It’s not against their (Google┬┤s) quality guidelines to list two different locations for a given business. On the other hand, it is against their guidelines to have two listings for the same business at the same location. This is what they call “duplicate listings”.

    Hope that answers your questions .. =)
