    Hi Guys,

    One of my clients site is ranking pretty good in Google. I have helped them with the Google+ page and it has over 1K users. The page is very active and all good. Now the clients brand name is a very generic keyword. But the Google+ profile of the company is not showing up in the side when searched. It showed up briefly for sometime but its gone. It came back and stayed for few weeks now its gone again. The Google+ page profile is complete except the business verification. I can't do this cause client instructed me not to enable Google reviews cause competition is constantly spamming his review pages (Qype, Yelp etc) So he don't want to risk this. I'm wondering if this is the reason for Google to not show the company G+ page in the side along with the latest blog post. (It showed them some time ago but on and off) The website is linked with this profile and verified. Google even verified and gave the brand custom URL (www.google.com/+brandname)

    Client has solid social pages (Facebook with over 60K active users, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube) but except Facebook nothing else ranks for the brand in first page.

    Ideally I want the following;

    1. Brand G+ page on side
    2. Social media sites (Twitter, Linkedin, G+ page, Glipho, Blogspot)
    3. Youtube page

    I'm struggling to solve this. I'm thinking this is mainly to do with the brand being 'Generic' If anyone can help I can even pay you up (PM me for details) and please do not PM with any black hat methods in mind. I want a clean way to solve this without causing any problems to the client. (So I don't get fired)

    Any advice?

    Thanks :)

    Recheck the verification.....
    Whether they are associated with the google+ profile....
    If yes, then the regular engagement and traffic is essential to make a company`s G+ page to get appear in the search result...

    Try updating the unique content to the website and engage with Google+ profile... Make out few traffic more than the usual for some days...
    After a few days of time, you could get better results I hope...

    Are you sure that, Google verified your site????

    Thanks for your reply. Yes it says Verified local business (A shield with correct sign) it also shows a correct sign 'Linked website' next to the web URL. When I login to G+ it says I must complete the listing (Its currently at 85%) I have done except 'Verify Business' this is the Google places verification (Post card pin etc) I can't enable this as fear of competiton trashing the reviews. Google wont remove fake reviews either so its my clients concern.

    As far as sharing goes all pages are very active and frequently shared. I have enabled Authorships and they all working fine.

    It's just the G+ page stick to the side in serps or any social page rank for the brand. I have irrelevant results for the brand term apart from the main site and Fb page.

    Thanks for your help !
