    GMB Edits Reverting Within 24 Hours. Local Viking the Cause

    I see this problem with many tools, LV, Moz, Yext.. I suggest disconnecting it. Tools can cause suspensions as well.

    Would changing the main business category drop a GMB rankings significantly or at all if it's in the same industry?

    Changing the category scares me because I've changed the main category on a few listings to a similar category which resulted in suspensions. It took about a month to get reinstated.

    Trending Local Algorithm Update in April 2020?

    Okay thank you. We will sit tight then think about audit if waiting doesn't work. Unfortunately, we are cutting most things right now bc we were already getting zero calls.

    Trending Local Algorithm Update in April 2020?

    ...from people in the blackhat space. There is no such thing as a ranking penalty in the local results. Google enforces its guidelines via suspensions which might yank the listing off Google all together but don't impact the ranking of the listing. I'd suggest just sitting tight for a few...

    Twitter Suspensions?

    ...what platform? Are you sharing the same content on multiple accounts? I worked with a franchise that had A. blog posts automatically shared on Twitter that cause massive suspensions. We ultimately decided to shut down all of the individual Twitter accounts and use one main account for the brand.

    Twitter Suspensions?

    Anyone seeing several client Twitter accounts being suspended without cause? Usually we see this due to inactivity but we have some clients we actively post on that are experiencing suspensions as well.

    Any feedback? GMB Profile reported repeatedly...now cannot get anyone to review and reinstate

    ...down for Covid-19. Two were for the same firm and one was completely unrelated. All 3 have since been reinstated. It is similar to the suspensions we saw last March and June and this past January. I am more inclined to think it is Google conducting sweeps rather than competitors reporting...

    Restaurant Changes RE: COVID-19

    Received this email from Google today re: one grocery location where I tested adding "Delivery Available" to the business name two weeks ago. I removed "Delivery Available" from the business name yesterday afternoon during maintenance as it did not seem to do me a bit of good. Attached is a...

    Any feedback? GMB Profile reported repeatedly...now cannot get anyone to review and reinstate

    ...listings are getting reinstated and then immediately going into pending review. There are supposed to be safe guards in place to prevent repeated suspensions when a listing is able to prove their eligibility. I am not sure why this is not working in this case. What is the category for your...

    GMB Listing Suspended & Can't Get It Back

    ...limited due to Covid-19. Please see Google’s official statement. That being said, social support can’t do anything to assist with suspensions. Have you received any email from GMB after filing for reinstatement? The reinstatement team will email you back. Reinstatement’s typically take 1 to 2...

    Restaurant Changes RE: COVID-19

    I'm testing with one of our grocery locations that offers delivery. I added "Delivery Available" early this morning, 10 hours later it is still in "Pending Edits" status. I'm hopeful this will resolve, we have several locations that offer both Delivery and Curbside pickup, incredibly valuable...

    GMB listing suspended - anything I can do?

    Has Anyone Experienced Automatic Suspension After Verifying Location

    Has Anyone Experienced Automatic Suspension After Verifying Location

    ...client operates and if you're certain it qualifies for a Google My Business listing? I know there have been a lot of problems with mass suspensions lately, but if Google is outright saying your client's business goes against its guidelines, then that's a little more worrisome. If your...

    Huge Change for Service Area Businesses in Google My Business

    If you're a business that actually serves customers in a specific area (and not just at your store/office/etc), then yes, it's worth doing.

    Huge Change for Service Area Businesses in Google My Business

    Thank you. So what impact does it have? Helps? Hurts? Nothing? I'm just wondering bc I am nervous about changing anything when suspensions seem to be happening with small edits.

    GMB listing suspended - anything I can do?

    like I've said before. Follow google's TOS, get suspended. Ignore google's TOS, get suspended.

    GMB listing suspended - anything I can do?

    It sounds like @jlwilson has already spoken to Google about it so if it's already in progress, me submitting another report will just back things up for them further. I'd suggest waiting until they get back to you. Suspensions are frustrating so I hear you on that!
