    G+ account has two Local listings for my business...


    Within the last month or so, my business Local ranking has dropped and is not showing now. It had ranked within the top three or so for the last couple of years for my keywords.

    So I checked my G+ account and it has my business as two different profiles... I didn't add another profile. Is this normal? Do I need to delete one of the profiles? If so, how do I know which one to delete?

    Thanks in advance for your time in helping!

    Okay, after some more research, it looks like my Google Place and Google Plus are showing as two separate profiles. Has anyone else had this problem? How do I merge the two profiles into one?

    Thanks again!

    Actually you cannot merge the two profiles but you can import the data from the important profile.!

    So how would you handle the following regarding a import from one profile to another?

    https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/105514...52942139/about - Has customer reviews that I do not want to lose.

    https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/104862...ssrescue/about - Has my people, my website's +1s and content I do not want to lose.

    If I delete the first one which is not the local business verified account, will I lose all my connections, website's +1s and content shared?

    Again, thanks for your time in helping!

    https://plus.google.com/u/0/105514523832852942139/posts this account will help you to rank in google listing as your business is already verified but if you want to use both of them you can.

    KarnRawat,
    I'm sorry I never got back with you yesterday. I went ahead and deleted the non-verified account and now starting over with my verified account. I know I didn't create the account, so do you have any idea how the second account was created? Do not want this to happen again!

    Thank you again for all your time and help!
