More than one business in an address

Does it matter if there are more than a single business operating in an address for Google local?

It depends on what you mean by "does it matter?"

If you do a street address and cityname search in Google Maps, you'll get a listing of all the businesses located at that address. It's likely that those businesses aren't hurting each other by sharing the same building. It happens all the time.

On the other hand, if you have a dozen widget companies all located in the same suite at the same address, Google might not want to list them all in the same map + 10 listing for [widget placename] up at the top of Google's regular search, but that's just an assumption I'm making. Google's local filters may not yet have evolved that far.

Thanks. I should have been a bit more clear but my question is if Google is filtering out businesses that are sharing an address.

As far as I am aware, NO, Google do not filter listings that share common building/street address.
