Gretchen and Glen answered this well, but I just wanted to clarify. I run a search marketing company and we’ve had multiple coworking clients in the past. You definitely want to use suite numbers to differentiate the addresses, otherwise you run the risk of a duplication of the listings themselves (which can be a pain to remedy). You run the risk of this happening anyway because, well, Google isn’t perfect. I’ve seen addresses that are similar get meshed together and make a listing that appears in search results that is incorrect. While this is unavoidable with your members, make sure to keep an eye out for scenarios where the likelihood of duplication is higher. An example of this would be two separate businesses having no only a similar address, but a similar name as well.
Hope that helps!

I searched among the topics and didn’t see anything about this (so forgive me if the topic is buried somewhere).
We provide business address options for our members. Just this week a member had a google location verification sent to our address (for search reasons, obviously). We already have the address on google and I’m wondering if the member verifies their location as the same as ours if that will create conflict? Maybe it’s not a big deal- but I’m not sure how this works. Do we just need to slightly vary everyone’s addresses?
Thoughts and/or how you’ve dealt with this would be helpful!
