Once upon a time we set up a Google Business page, but later we realised we wanted PS Virtual Assistants to have a Google maps entry, so we set up a Google Local page too. But how could we merge the two? We now had two Google+ pages, one was our regularly updated main account with a wide circle of clients and users we followed and who followed us. That one was a Google+ Brand page, verified by adding a meta tag to our website. The other was a local page, verified by a code which Google sent to our business address by post. The latter had no update activity so it was important the brand page remained the main page.
How to merge your Google+ page’s
Voila. Our new Google+ page now gives viewers local information, including opening hours and a link to Google maps: PS Virtual Assistants Google+
The previous Local page appears with title ‘Backup of PS Virtual Assistants’.

Our newly merged local page appears in search results on Google Maps!
