Okay, I logged into a clients G+ Profile. Clicked on create a page.

Then clicked local business. Went to verify it and it now looks like ANOTHER G+ Local page. WTF?

Is there something I did wrong? UGH!

I was trying to create a BUSINESS "PAGE" not G+ Local Listing.

It's weird, as the last thing to "complete" the page is "Verify The Business" and that's when it looks like it's trying to be a G+ Local listing all of a sudden.

"Verifying" is the same as merging and turns the G+ Biz page into a G+ Local page.

Sounds like that's not what you wanted to do. PLUS Google says hold off and don't verify IE merge yet.
