Duplicate Google+ Local Pages.... How to merge / delete / consolidate them??? RandRHeating 5/31/12 4:42 PM

Prior to the recent conversion of Google Places to Google+ Local, we were in the process of resolving duplicate Google Places pages.  Google had assured in a few weeks the duplicates would be consolidated (we're in week 4 at least). Now, all the duplicate GP listings have become duplicate Google+ Local listings.  In addition, we already had a Google+ business page and it's still out there as well. How can we consolidate / merge the duplicates out there?

ORIGINAL GOOGLE+ BUSINESS PAGE:   https://plus.google.com/104834402961244795973

Duplicate GOOGLE+ LOCAL PAGE #1: https://plus.google.com/117549779483194788438
Duplicate GOOGLE+ LOCAL PAGE #2: https://plus.google.com/109482203055923584363
Duplicate GOOGLE+ LOCAL PAGE #3: https://plus.google.com/101488273742071164861
Duplicate GOOGLE+ LOCAL PAGE #4: https://plus.google.com/111050267390374483934
Duplicate GOOGLE+ LOCAL PAGE #5: https://plus.google.com/114470231762613267476

I *think* the one linked to our dashboard is duplicate #1 above. 

Your help is appreciated!!!

@MJM - So, what should be displaying now is 2 pages - a Google+ page (that you would have made in Google+) and a local Google+ page (that's what used to be the old Places listing). Eventually, we'll merge these pages so business owners have just one page to maintain. There's a separate issue here, as you've pointed out. Looks like you've got some duplicates of those pages, which should still be on the road to getting resolved. Those fixes take a while to go through, so don't be too discouraged if it's been a while since your first request. If you want, you can report the dupes again via the local Google+ page. Just click on Edit Business Details (below the map) and check "This is a duplicate." Be sure to provide the duplicate links in that report.

Thank you Jade... yes it has been a lot of waiting for the duplicates to get resolved. I will try and continue to be patient, and will also take you up on your suggestion to mark the Google+ pages as duplicates even though we should still be on track to getting those resolved.

Hi Jade, I have the same issue. 2 duplicates from the old Google Places and then the Local Google+ Profile I just made. I reported one of the duplicate Google Places as I claimed both in my account. Is that the right thing to do?

Hi Jade:

On a related note, will multiple listings for professional businesses be handled the same way in G+ as in GP? Specifically, will dental practices and each dentist working at the practice be allowed a separate G+ local business page (not ideal from the perspective of the dentists)? Or will there now be a G+ listing for the dental office that includes the names of the dentists? If so, which GP listing will Google select to merge with the G+ listing?

Thanks for your help!

You should only have one of the duplicates claimed in your account.  Delete the other one, and remove it from your account.

I created a google place page a few years ago for our business.  When google+ went live someone else here created a google+ page for it.  We now have reviews, pictures, etc spread across these two listings and two accounts.  

1) What should be our course of action? 
2) should i start a new discussion for this?
