Merge two GMB listings into one

I have a shop with 2 exactly the same(name, adress, phone etc) GMB listings. One of the 2 is verified the other is not verified but it has some reviews. How I can merge the non verified to the verified one?

  • Denys Dubner: We had exactly the same discovery today. And we contacted G asking to merge the listings for us. No answer so far.
  • Rob Woods: they will answer. It`s one of the few unpaid services from Google where you can get help from a real live person
  • Denys Dubner: Rob Woods Thanks Rob. Does this issue strongly impact the ranking?
  • Rob Woods: yes, especially if the duplicate location has reviews. You want all your reviews aggregated under one listing
  • Denys Dubner: Rob Woods That’s what I thought. Thanks for clarifying.
  • Makis Cris: Rob Woods I called Google support and they said they will fix it asap! I didn`t know this was possible. You are a life saver Rob!
