ok, i'm just starting to get some kind of handle on this whole google+ / local / social / places / business listings thing -i'm one of those who for reasons not yet specified, had my local business that was topping the list at "a" on the map, disabled and removed. i am not yet 100% certain whether or not it was because perhaps they looked at me as a service area business who did not hide my address, but the thing is, i am a computer repair technician, IT consultant - although i do go to some customers' locations, most of my customers come and bring their equipment to me for service and also for purchasing computers, peripherals, and accessories. another problem seems to be that, aside from not knowing whether or not i am able to list myself as a non-service area business, before my google+ local business listing got disabled/suspended/removed, the categories i could choose from to describe my business were only things like sushi restaurant, funeral home, hotel, accounting firm - not a single category for computer store or computer repair/service center. nothing even remotely related to that category - even though we all know that there are thousands of brick & mortar computer shops, for sales and service that not only receive clients at the storefront, but who only do that and never visit any clients' locations. so why are there no categories relating to this type of business? funny, i'm only thinking about this issue in hopes that i'll eventually get a chance to have to deal with it again, e.g., my listing will one day get back on the map. i appreciate any input or experience anyone can relate regarding this issue. thanks.
