Multiple Domains and Google Maps Listing-Same Address

Will Google penalize if there are multiple domains listed with Google maps while utilizing the same address? Same UPS box?

It won't effect Organic, but it is a Local violation so you won't rank (for long) in the Local or Maps pack results

Thanks Headz, that's the answer I was looking for! Looks like I'll be listing them with different addresses then.

Google wants to be able to send people to an actual address, so the system is built around that. Use the real business address, and then choose the option to hide it and specify a service area- if you don't actual serve people at the address.

Check out Blumenthal's blog and LocalU for more help if you need.
