Another great Search Engine Land post from Joy Hawkins . This is a great read, both to bone up on how to troubleshoot a potentially problematic listing, but also to make sure you've got your best practices down. it's especially important if you ever need to ask Google for help, since as Joy mentioned, if you've got an issue you didn't notice and you ask for help either on the forum or by calling into Google support, you can inadvertently crash your listing when they take a closer look at your profile. Do you have any potential hidden land-mines in any of your listings? Find out!
The point about controlled industries (guns, in the article) was a new one for me. Anyone else have any favorite takeaways, or points Joy wrote about that you've had to deal with out in the wild?
I see threads over at the Google My Business forum all the time from panicked business owners or SEOs who have logged into Google My Business to see a big red “Suspended” banner at the top of the page. The Google My Business guidelines have a very long list of things you shouldn’t do, but some offenses are much more serious than others.
