I don't know if this post has already been shared. I apologize if so.

How Do I Merge My Google + Pages? Usually You Can't, Now What? - Local University


I have had a few clients that jumped the gun, myself included, and created a G+ business page in attempt to be "social". Now that Google has taken upon themselves to add the social aspect with the Local I couldn't figure out where to direct our audience. This post gives great suggestions for a variety of scenarios that you or a client very well may fit in.

Good one Amber!

Not sure how I missed that one. The news bot even posted a copy of it here, but must have been a busy day because I missed it. So I'm glad you brought it up again. Off to read.
