    2 Business w/ Same Location


    Hello, did not find a definitive answer here so I will ask again.

    I have a client who has 2 fully legit LLC businesses but are run out of the same office building. I know Google will not allow duplicate addresses for multiple businesses on Google My Business. The real problem is they are in an office park so they are already an office suite of 209. So my question is can I just add an a to the end of this suite number to differentiate these? If I make the second business Suite 109a will that be OK with Google? They really do not say on their website.

    Thank you

    Try it, sometimes it will work sometimes not. I manage a number of hotels websites, it's a pain when the hotel, spa, golf course and 3 restaurants all have the same address. Just keep trying.

    Well I just spoke to Google directly and they said you can give them business licenses for each business at the same address and it's all good. What is not good is they shouldn't/can't be the same category in Google My Business. I did not get a chance to ask anymore about that part but at least I know it's possible. My problem is they are both similar in nature. One is a general contractor type thing and the other is a specific type of service.

    Have you tried using more complete adresses, just a guess, but sometimes you have office 23 or *** like that at the end of an address, try it maybe it could work cause technically it is not the same address anymore.

    Even my employer has two 2 legit businesses running at the same address and I did register that successfully on that same address.

    Try register...Google will accept this.

    Turns out they don't care if the businesses have different phone numbers and non similar categories. If the categories are too closely related it's a problem.

    It is not possible to submit two different businesses on almost same location in Google listings.
