How to Handle Your My Business Listing Suspension

It is happening more and more often in #Australia. As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, #GoogleMyBusiness listings have the ability to be edited by anybody, from rivals who want nothing better than to take you down, to advertising firms who want you out of the way so that they could build up the positioning of their clients on Google.

There are numerous reports of Google Maps listings that have had suspensions and removed.

Real businesses were suspended, Google’s trying to crack down on spam to Maps listing.

When someone decides to edit your Google My Business Listing, they click on Suggest an Edit. They have a selection to change name or other details like title, location, hours, etc..

They also have a second option to”close this place”. They can opt to mark your company as closed, nonexistent, or duplicate.

This will effectively be a nail in your coffin as your listing probably will be suspended and may even be deleted.
