If you’re a digital marketer then you’d know that you can’t avoid Google. Any of it.
Having started a new role and inheriting a few accounts it comes apparent that if you haven’t got Google “all i
n one place” it is a nightmare. The stuff that I have under one account works wonderfully – webmaster tools, adwords, + and analytics. Unfortunately the places account was made by someone else under a user and account that no one can access – which has made the google SERP links not work perfectly.
What makes it more frustrating is Google attitude towards it, it’s impossible for me to call them, they don’t respond on their + page. All I want is the one we’re using to replace the one we aren’t. Now I’m waiting for a letter to arrive to verify things which can take 2 weeks – i truly believe this could be done in 2 minutes.
I’m now potentially looking at having to delete our page and make a new one that can link with the places page. I have done a lot of work on our current plus page and this is a real sucker punch.
On top of this is the merchant account which was made before I came here with an age of under 18, which means I can’t have a merchant account and need to use another google account. I could prove I’m over 18 but they won’t let me. Another reason I can’t have everything in one place.
