My personal Gmail account is the "owner" on our company's Google+ Page. I plan on claiming the listings of our two out-of-State sales offices.

Can I do so using the same Gmail address? Of should I create a separate Gmail account to claim each listing?

Are you an employee or vendor/contractor?

For clients, I create their own Google account for all of their Google assets (GWMT, Analytics, Google My Business, etc.).

If they have multiple locations, I'd claim them under one account. You can add managers to each location.

If you're a vendor/agency/contractor do NOT claim client listings under your account.

Hi Chris,

I'm an employee managing our company's social media. We already have a Google+ Page for the company, but I didn't create it as a "Local" page, since we do business in multiple states.

However, I want to claim our 2 sales office listings as local pages. Can I manage all three (1 organization page and 2 local pages) under a single Gmail?

I manage 8 clients. All have *had* G+ accounts with their business listing there. I've either 1) added me as an admin user or 2) Created & Verified listings off of my business gmail account.

Why is this a bad idea?
