    Lost more than 20 verified Google business pages for one day !

    Hello

    For some reason it doesnt show up at all one of my previous clients with multiple locations in California and Texas loses ~20 locations for 1-2 days. Right now they have in house webmaster, so i don't know what is did recently, but it's very strange for me that Business that had >20 locations (all of them in the same G. Account), /no spam, no violations, no duplicates, etc/ for 1-2 days loses 95% of their locations.

    All this location are G. verified and existing >1-2 years.

    From user side if i try to search "Business Name " + Location

    1. Most of them - No INFO on right side of them page
    2. Some of them - Information with Permanently closed or Moved to other location.

    As my client told me - they have only 2-3 locations right now in their GMB account. Nothing else.

    Has anyone heard this?

    Any advice will be appreciated !

    Was the account hacked? Maybe check for a new manager/owner account that was added recently?

    I was wondering that too Bryan. That answer could tell the tale.

    My Guess:
    Not real locations with regular staff

    Yeah I was going say what Cody said. I have seen quite a few mass takedowns lately. Definitely not a good sign but it is happening to places using PO Boxes or virtual offices.

    I assumed these were legit listings, but probably not if the OP doesn't respond back here.
