What's your business name? If it's something like "Dickhouse enterprises", then you would get ban for sure, as it's just a little bit offensive. Have you tried contacting them to resolve the problem? They've asked you to do that.
When they ban accounts like Mashable, Ford, Sesame Street, and Searchengineland, I see no reason why they will unban my business. I have a perfectly valid and clean business name, and this is complete BS from Google. They did not at any time say a business/pseudonyme or similar did not have access to the Google Plus project. And suddenly they ban every honest company trying to make an effort there. I really cannot get it.
Did a bit of reading and on http://ibnlive.in.com/news/google-deletes-business-profiles-from-google/169306-11.html found this:
"Google had earlier asked businesses not to create Google+ profiles as the company was in the process of working on a business-specific feature."
"In a Google+ post Christian Oestlien, Google+ product manager, said that Google will have an initial version of business profiles in the next few months. Some select businesses will get their profiles in the meanwhile so that Google can test how businesses interact with consumers. "
So, basically, they DID tell everyone not to create business accounts there. Yet. They will be allowed in the future.
EDIT: Double reply...
Maybe they are planning paid listings.
Who knows. It sure sounds like something they at least will concider.
somehow it's sympathetic, not to mix business with personal kind of things
moreover it seems they announced this before, so you cannot complain much
i changed my name after this
It's Google, they can do whatever the fuck they want on their platform. Same way you apply rules in your house.
And if they have double standards, when it's their house, so... Business is not about being fair, it's about them getting what they want.
By the way, my business page didn't got banned, but I applied for beta testing of new business profiles and stated that it's my business page. I believe that is closed now.
Separate names with a comma.
