Google Places - Two Websites - Same Business what to do?

Discussion in 'Google' started by jacobean, Jun 13, 2011.

    I have two sites...same company

    site a = old site 6 year old site

    site b = new 2 year old site
    SEMrush

    Site A ranks top in organic search results for two main keywords..not registered with Google Places.

    Site B - Is registered on Google Places but only shows up occasionally.


    Should I just register BOTH sites on Google Places....does Google allow this?
    Any good strategies that could be employed here?

    I'd let a sleeping dog lie. If you merge the two you're in for one hell of a nightmare trying to edit it. It's a huge bug Google has, and if it breaks it takes months to fix. You have to comment in their forum to fix anything.

    Also, the one that not registered, now you have no clue on performance. Aren't you curious about impressions, etc...?

    The possible way is to terminate current account targeted to the new site and than register it again with target to the old one.

    ok, this sounds like a viable option - I am getting no results with it anyway. So how do I officially terminate
    the listing and submit the old site?

    Any more thoughts on this - anyone?

    Should I just terminate listing for new site on Google Places
    and enter
    Old site Instead

    It depends on whether google places is merging the listing with your website for your main keyword phrase. Sometimes the merging might reduce your sites visibility so if you have one site on top of serps I'd probably not use it and work on the other!

    Two sites, one company is OK. But the content should be required unique for these two. Promote the keywords first few keywords for the one site and take other keywords and promote for other site. Like this way You promote 2 sites and may be get ranking first one for old site and at 2nd position the new site.

    This could actually turn out to be a good thing as long as you aren't cloning content across the sites. You could always merge one to be your front facing one and another to be more of your "corporate" website.
