Google Places and Google Plus Page Migrations
You can verify the business page and merge the two pages through the following process:
Log in to your Google Plus account and access your business page.
At the top of the page, next to the page title, there will be an “Unverified” link. If you hover over this link, a “Verify Now” button will pop up. You can also get to the “Verify Now” button directly under the profile picture and map listing under the “Is This Your Business?” heading.
Click this button. It will bring up the Google Places listings that match your page. If you have not claimed your Local listing, it may not show up.
Select the Places listing you want to merge with your business page. You can also select “None of the above” if the Places listing is not showing up, and you can verify your page, thereby adding Places functions to the business page for the business.
Enter the your name in the available form field.
You will receive a postcard in the mail with a PIN number in approximately one week.
Follow the link on the post card. Enter the PIN number and the business page will be verified: merged with the Google Places listing.
Or, you may finish the verification process by clicking the “Enter PIN” button where the “Verify Now” button used to display.
