    Has this happened to anyones G+ business page?
    My page has been suspended and google provided no reason why.
    Sent a reinstatement request and called google support, no answers yet.

    It was just a regular local business page, I didn't post anything on it to get banned.

    I suspected that also. But now I am really screwed, phone is not ringing and google offers no answers as to why it is suspended nor will they reinstate the page since last week.

    i had a page suspended for the same reason , you can appeal and they call you next day . they told me my page looked to spammy but the changes were minimal . if your online you can make the changes while they stay on the line ,they couldnt be more helpful . take a look at your page and get some things changed while you wait for the call .

    Randy - once you get this fixed, go ahead and build a couple of sites and rank them in G for your local KWs. I've done that in the past for guys and recommend it for some of my clients... you can easily do that yourself so set yourself up after this mess is cleaned up so that next time, if there is one, you don't get totally hosed.

    I suspect we'll see more of this in the future and on a grander scale.

    i think they partly wanted to check to see if i was legit .i had a previous page to the same address and the 2 lots of info kept merging ,like the phone number from one earlier page kept appearing on my new page info ,my page also only had 3 or 4 posts so maybe not enough content was the problem .shocking really that they can force so much importance on another 1 of their failed social media projects.

    Never had this happen myself. I would think back to see what you may have posted that may have caused this. Could be that a competitor reported you which is a bit low but I guess that is how people are.

    My Google + listing is back after 2 week suspension.
    No explanation from google as to why it was suspended, it just showed back up.

    Hi how did you end up resolving this issue? I am having the same exact issue. I just moved here from out of state and so I needed to update my business address on my google+ page and when I did my account got suspended. They asked me to send them proof that the address on the page is mines and I did that so my suspension was lifted no problems but now out of the blue my page is once again suspended giving me the same error you got. I have not made any changes to my google+ page since my original suspension was lifted so they should have 0 reason to suspect anything or suspend me again. Help would be appreciated thanks...

    That's rough. Ya, G's been cracking down on this more and more recently. Did you have any duplicate info on there?

    No, it didn't happen with me. What was you posted here mate? You always concern the content during posting at G+ as they consider more these things.

    I've seen a few google my business listings get deleted due to inactivity. Your best bet is to call the Google my business team and ask them. Most of the reps are quite helpful, if you get one that does not answer your question call a few times more.

    if it is not a real business at a real address then if they discover you they will suspend you. You have to be very careful with your IP addresses, cookies on your machine, web RTC, JavaScript, flash, and a host of other ways that they can identify you and link all of your nefarious activities together. That said, you can do this successfully and at a very large scale if you are careful.
