    Hello fellow Black Hatters,

    I'm trying to rank a client's second location on google maps. They want to use the same url and create a sub domain or landing page. Does anyone have tips or experience with this? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I'm in the process of doing the same thing. What I'm going to do is have the main URL as a general page, then have subpages/categories for each location. Then submit to google for each one. You treat the sub page as a separate site pretty much. Have it's separate phone number, address, map, etc.

    I have a similar question to yours hopefully someone can help. There are a few cities nearby that we want to service and be listed in google places, but we don't have a physical office there. What's the best way to get listed in google maps for each city? I was going to do a PO Box but then read Google doesn't allow that.

    I think you can do little changes with the name of company and you can use Subdomain for adding it on Google maps. I think it'll work.

    You can try out Virtual Offices. Cost about $100 per month and come along with mail forwarding services.

    The best way it sub-pages for each location like mentioned above, each with a verified GMB, and unique citations pointing to each location.
    It's good for the offices to have a unique name, even if it's just based on location, to avoid duplicate confusion and control the brand searches.
