If someone creates a brand new SAB listing, I'd love to hear about whether or not you are required to provide an address for verification. This seems unclear.
We could test that. Need a business listing that has a small service area chosen. If too big an area is chosen, it'll be harder to tell because of a natural drop-off in rankings. Falcon scan could show us if the there is a hard drop off at the perimeter or not.Let's say you put in "Los Angeles, CA." Does that cover only LA proper, or also some of the suburbs, or LA County, or the whole general area? Does that make it necessary or excessive also to add a bunch of additional cities or ZIPs?
As of right now, it does nothing. Time will tell if that changes.
For now, I would advise no one add their address back in if Google wiped it out. It causes a verification to trigger.
