When you’re setting up your Google+ Local page the very first thing you need to consider is what account are you going to use – your personal account or another, ‘clean’ account.
Using the same account across everything
Firstly, do you have Google Analytics or Google Webmaster tools set up? If that’s the case then you should use that same Google account to set up your Google+ Local page.
This keeps everything tidy and means there’s only one Google account (personal or not) being used for everything.
Starting from scratch
If you have not yet set up Google Analytics or Webmaster tools then I suggest creating a new ‘clean’ Google account that can be used for these as well as Google+ Local.
As a ‘non-personal’ account, the login details and password can be shared as widely as you feel comfortable. And it is easy to bar access to the account by simply changing the password at any time.
You can use a business email (like firstname.lastname@example.org) to create a Google account – you don’t have to create a totally new Google email.
Struggling with Google+ Local?
I’m also on Google+ if you want to chat there.
