How Do You Set Up The Syndication Network Of Several GMB Sites In Same Metro Area?

In episode 210 of Semantic Mastery’s weekly Hump Day Hangouts (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwFiztPguuU), one participant asked how to set up the syndication network of several GMB sites in the same metro area. The exact question was: So if I have a group of GMB sites in the same metro area, and a WordPress site ranked on page one in SERPs, and a YouTube Channel with videos ranking on page one of Google’s video page, and I want to lease all of these as a total package deal to a business owner operating in the area, how do I set up the syndication network for this? Can I feed the RSS Feeds from ALL the GMB sites and the WordPress site blog into ONE generically branded syndication network, or do I need to set up separate networks for each GMB site and WordPress site?
