Google+ LocalTypically if you search Google for local results, you may see a link to the business Google+ page. But do you ever see two different links to Google+ pages under one listing? Typically not.

But in one case, you do. Search for [suit alterations london parker street] and the result for londonfashionworkrooms.co.uk has two Google+ links under the local results.

dual Google+ local links

What is interesting is that the Google+ page is the same, the only difference is that one links to the posts and the other links to the about section, but the Google+ company page is the same.

Google's Jade Wang said she will look into it, she wrote:

Interesting... looking into it. Thanks for reporting.

If it was me, I'd probably stay quiet and take the extra link.

Barry this might be happening because business is verified on both Google places and Google+Local. Recently I verified my two listing and Google show 2 Google+ Profile beneath my listing in SERP. First I verified in Google+ then verified in Google places by postcard to merge.
