Does Google Blacklist Your Company If Your Google+ Local Page Has Been Removed?

I've often wondered if Google blacklists companies that have had their Google+ Local pages removed for violating their terms.

For example...say a company uses a virtual or fake address. Everything is fine until someone rats them out until a competitor rats them out or Google catches it. Of course we all know what happens - Google takes the page down.

The question is...if that company tries to create another page with or without a real address, will it be under special scrutiny - like will it automatically go into a pending review mode for weeks?

You would think a company would be flagged by their system so that whenever they tried to create a new listing, Google would pay special attention to it to make sure it was legit...right?

We had our Places account suspended for using a virtual office strategy. At the same time we also had an unnatural link penalty against us. We removed all our listings from our suspended G account. We created a new G account and claimed the scraped listing that was floating out there. We were able to verify, the listing is live, and we were ranking locally usually between E & F. Shortly after our penalty was lifted and we are ranking in the top three for some KW.

Thanks for sharing. That's great to know that Google doesn't punish a business indefinitely.
