    Google business using the same address


    We have a repair business with its own site and have recently launched a manufacturing business which operates out of the same location. It has its own website and i have put the address on that page as well. I wanted to create a local listing for this business but was not sure on how that would take with google. We use the same address, suite and phone # with the only difference being name and website.

    Totally depends on a variety of factors that I need to know more about. You could have 10 sites and business names but could still only be classified as one business by Google.

    What is the physical location? An office, store, warehouse, home office, or???

    Are they in the same or related industry? What industry

    How many people in the company?

    If I call either business am I going to get the same person answering the phone? And then will it be the same person or team that provides either service to the customer?

    Have a feeling you can't add links here, but it's just really like guessing in the dark without seeing the sites because one situation might be OK but another that is quite similar would not. The devil's in the details.

    But if you can answer the Qs above I can maybe give you some general info that would help.

    Its a store/ office

    We repair electronics and use soldering stations and other tools, the company we started is to manufacture solder stations in the USA

    They are definitely different businesses as they serve totally different clients

    Separate employees, but same phone #
    Getting a new # is no problem but for now its the same

    Phone numbers are really key in local optimization so if you want to have two different instances consider a separate phone number. After that make a slight alteration to the address, for example, Suite 140B instead of Suite 140. Some local optimization resources are out there to give you even more direction for same location, same phone, different google listings.
