    That's what she said.

    The latter: unrelated individual clients. Holly's clients, and mine.

    I think we must be on a different wave length. I know you know the rules and nothing I said had anything to do with rules. I was trying to determine scope.

    You said "all her clients" and I was just trying to get at how many Holly had...

    Doe that mean she had a chain with 20 plumbing company locations? Or does that mean 3 unrelated clients like a plumber, a house cleaner and a dog walker.

    One more question. If you search for the business by name and locale should not that businesses Google info show up in the upper right corner? - you know the header of the Plus page, hours, review button?

    Because this not happening as well as what I mentioned above going thru the dashboard.

    LOL I see the confusion now Phil. You thought I was asking you all those questions.

    No post #16 was addressed to Holly.

    Holly said in post 17 there were 3 clients.

    Hey Holly, I'm just curious, what industries?

    Re: Crackdown on residential addresses for Service Area Businesses?

    Update:

    It looks like Google accidentally sat on those 2 service-area listings I described.

    Client #1 sent an email to Google support, begging and wearing his confusion on his sleeve. Support said they didn't know why the listing got suspended. Now he's back up.

    Client #2 also had his listing un-suspended today. He hasn't yet told me the specifics of his back-and-forth with Google, though I suspect it's the same deal as with #1.

    Moral of the story: just contact Places support, will ya

    Re: Crackdown on residential addresses for Service Area Businesses?

    Had the same problem, they took listing down saying that i have duplicate pages with same phone number and same address!
    And yes, i had a small business from my home and then i changed names of the business so now i had a second page with same address and phone number, and also had a 3rd home business , so all i had 3 pages, and they suspended all, and never sent any emails out, till i have contacted them, so i provide proof from the state and city as i was a legally residential business and the re-instate one of them. And they said that to get listed on page , you can do only 1 business per address, but how about if i have a online store with a different business that i already have can i list that in pages? they say no because is 1 listing per 1 residential or business address.

    Thanks
