2. Can I have multiple Google Business Pages? – 1 for each suburb and 1 for the Region

3. How do I “engineer” a Google Business Page for the Region ie, the Gold Coast – at the moment, I am showing for my suburb only?
Hi MD Clean,

Don’t screw around with Google’s rules.

You should read the Google Guidelines at:

This section will apply:

Local business information quality guidelines

“Do not create a page or place your pin marker at a location where the business does not physically exist. P.O. Boxes are not considered accurate physical locations. Your business location should be staffed during its stated hours.”

“Do not create more than one page for each business location, either in a single account or multiple accounts.”

“Businesses that operate in a service area should create one page for the central office or location and designate service areas. If you wish to display your complete business address while setting your service area(s), your business location should be staffed and able to receive customers during its stated hours. Google will determine how best to display your business address based on your inputs as well as inputs from other sources.”

This section may apply:

Service-area businesses on Google

“If your business serves customers at their locations, you should list it as a service area business on Google.

You will be able to set service areas based on the zip codes or cities you serve, or on a given area around your location.”

Hope this helps.
Regs,
