Google: Delete Your Google+ Local Page If...

Google+ LocalGoogler, Abby DeBellis, from the Google Local team, said in a Google Local Help thread that some businesses that have Google+ Local pages should delete their Google+ page.

Which ones? Those that do not accept customers at their location. Those businesses should have a their address hidden, according to the terms of service. And because those businesses should have their address hidden, they are not supported within Google+ yet.

Abby explained:

If you do not accept customers at your location, then your address should be hidden. At this time, Google+ currently does not support hidden addresses. You should delete your social local Google+ page from within Google+ (Click on Pages on the ribbon on the left, go to the Settings of your page, and scroll to the bottom and click Delete page).

Don't worry! You can still manage your business’ presence on Google. Here’s how:

- If you're a verified business owner in Google Places for Business...
-- Manage the listing via the Google Places for Business dashboard. Be sure to hide your address.
- If not, but a listing for your business exists...
-- Find the listing for your business and become a verified business owner by clicking on Manage this page on the right-hand side.
-- Then, manage the page via the Google Places for Business dashboard
- If no listing for your business exists...
-- Add it on Google Places for Business:

Will this change? It appears so. But how soon? No idea.
