I work for a client and they now have a verified businesshttps://plus.google.com/b/103258814629338822634/103258814629338822634/posts
and a non-verified local pagehttps://plus.google.com/b/100760256117944494561/+Poddlepod/posts
I have read many pages on creating local pages and verifying etc but I cannot seem to fins a way to verify and merge the local page.
Although they look similar and I could just advise the client to use the business page this is not what I want to do as I am aware that it is possible to merge the pages (I just cannot figure out how).
I have also claimed the shortened URL Google/+Poddlepod but what will happen to this if a merger is successful? Will it disappear or will the joint business/local listing use the shortened version.
Any help is appreciated as I have been working at this problem on and off now for 3 days.
Thanks in advance,
