By April

In episode 217 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked if it is best to use the city + brand name when building multiple GMB sites in the same geographical area.

The exact question was:

Happy New Year Dudes!!! Short GMB question. If building multiple GMB sites in the same geographical area, and I want to build a brand, is it best to use the city+brand name is the name so that Google doesn't see it as a spam site? I was going to use the brand name for each location but MGYB customer service suggested I not do it that way. How do you do it? Thanks.
