@premiumweb Yep. In my case, all of the listings that had hard suspensions from this bug were still showing as "Published" within the GMB dashboard so the only way to see they were actually suspended was by trying to view them on search and maps.
@codyecp Yes, I am using call tracking on my listings as well but I didn't make any changes to the phone numbers to get them reinstated I just slightly tweaked the short names.
@Nikki Stine Fascinating! Thanks for the update. Well, at least we seem to have a temporary workaround for other...
Hi @Nikki Stine, for each of the listings in the GMB Info sections when I clicked "View on Search" the Business Profile/knowledge panel didn't show in the Google Search and when I clicked "View on Maps" there was no business shown on Maps.
Yeah, like with your previous client soft suspensions...
So I started submitting reinstatement requests for those suspended locations but got the "Page already live" email auto response a few minutes later.
They may show they are published in the dashboard but are definitely hard suspended on Maps.
Some of the locations I manage from a chain on GMB just got hard suspensions (for unknown reasons) but within the GMB dashboard, each of these locations are still showing the status of "Published" like the other locations that are live. Is this a bug? Has anyone else seen this?
The new NFL stadium being built for the Rams and Chargers in Inglewood, CA already has 155 Google reviews but it's not slated to open until the summer of 2020.
Looks like some NFL fans are entertaining themselves by spamming the listing long before it opens.
Here are some examples:
@nwinezog Back in December Mike Blumenthal did a helpful list of which categories and services are currently supported and which are not supported for Reserve with Google.
Reserve With Google - Which Categories & Services Are Eligible?
Yeah, they are pay to play because they're basically lead gen websites where you pay to be listed and pay for reservations they get for you. So that's why they require you to use one of their tracking numbers that forwards to their call centers, etc.
But yeah, I thought it was weird that...
So I work with a multi-location self storage company and we'd like to get citations on some or all of the top citation sources for storage according to Whitespark but we noticed several of these sites won't allow us to use our phone number, we'd have to use their provided numbers instead.
