Google Local Business: Can’t Change Business Ownership?

Filed under: GOOGLE LOCAL BUSINESS — Tags: — ioconnor @ 3:08 pm

This seems totally ludicrous but if you set up a business ownership on google maps apparently once you finish you can’t transfer ownership. It stays attached to your email account forever. Unless you want to delete everything, including the reviews, and start all over from scratch!

You’d think a business listing would have multiple accounts associated with it. Similar to a document in docs.google so multiple people could update things. Nope. So be careful!
