I’m looking for some insight on the new process for claiming or being added as a manager on Google listings. We are trying to figure out the smoothest, most trouble free way to manage listings that have already been claimed.
If the client has access to the listing and wants to add us as a manager, would it be more beneficial to create a master account that will manage many Google listings, rather than one Google account per client? We currently create individual accounts for each of our clients, but we are thinking that a master account would be much easier.
I am not finding anything in the guidelines that state that it is not allowed for one account to be a manager for multiple Google listings.
What are your opinions on having a master account? It will be easier, but will it raise any flags?
Given that the new dashboards are multiuser the issues are no longer as constraining as they once were.
I think that it makes perfectly good sense to add a single account as a manager. There is a limit to 50 listings in a Plus account and 100 listing in a Places Dashboard. So keep that in mind. You could do this with just a gmail account and not use a personal plus account which might make it even cleaner.
To me the issue revolves around the ethics of a client being able to get complete control of their listing at some point in the future in they are not the owner.
