    Keep getting Being reviewed after verification

    I just verified two different google places accounts(both are legit businesses) today but both of them said

    Pending - Being reviewed ..

    any ideas?

    maybe one ip for too many accounts? it is small agency helping to create & verifying google places..

    Re: Keep getting Being reviewed after verification

    Greetings, this is a pain in the butt! One of the first things I try in a situation like this is to "poke" the listing with a null edit. See if that brings it out of review mode. If this doesn't work there is most likely a bigger issue happening.

    Re: Keep getting Being reviewed after verification

    Thanks so much Colan. Missed this one.

    Colan is right, sometimes a poke will bring a listing out of pending but it can take 4 - 5 days currently before it will work IF it does. And I'm not sure it will help a brand new pending, but I've seen it help listings that were 'stuck' in pending for a long time.

    If you are having the problem on 2 separate listings I wonder if you are doing something Google does not like in both listings. Double check for violations and even minor infractions that can trip a filter. For instance are both REAL locations? No home office, virtual office, UPS store or anything like that, right?

    Re: Keep getting Being reviewed after verification

    To let you know, there is some "bug" in Google that they're aware of which is causing this issue. We've issued support tickets and have gotten the following reply:

    Hi there,

    Thanks for letting me know and for following up concerning your listing. After further review of your listing, it appears your listing has been affected by a technical issue. We don't have a concrete timeline which we can give for this, but we have taken note of your listing and we will be reviewing your listing when our fix is fully in place.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding during this process.

    Have a lovely week!

    Regards,

    June
    The Google Team

    Re: Keep getting Being reviewed after verification

    There are a couple "reviewed" by Google scenarios.

    Carleton, your example is like Google's message of Doom. I've seen that message before and it's usually part of Google's loooong running issue of listings that have been dropped and aren't coming back anytime soon.

    I have a couple clients that have received similar responses and have been in "review" mode with no listing for months.

    Does the business that received your example response have a live listing?

    Re: Keep getting Being reviewed after verification

    The listing disappeared in the Spring and hasn't reappeared. We've been patiently awaiting the resolution from google's "technical issue" to see if it comes back - they had lots of great reviews and don't want to start again until we know for sure

    To note, the listing still shows in Google Places dashboard, but clicking to view gets the error page "location not supported."

    Is it a service area business?
