    Is it only me or anyone else thinking G places and Google Plus local is a total mess ? Maybe it's only in UK, but oh my...

    1. I had a business listing, on #1 spot, which was suspended just for requesting a change of phone number,
    2. I had another business listing with a different google account which was nowhere near #1 spot and my whole G+ account got busted, but this listing is still there but doesn't link to a website, so I thought F8ck this and optimized the listing as I did with the first listing and WHOLA! it's on first page now, but doesn't link to any website just g+page...

    And I'm talking about a combination of keywords with a total of about 1m monthly searches.

    this just sucks, wanna go and throw myself off the Tower Bridge

    Haha same thing has happened to me today because of our business number changing. No where to be seen and was also 1# in the local search. Its bollocks if you ask me.

    Yeah, it sucks. My home address and phone is listed as a business and they have removed it, only for it to pop up a couple of months later, this has happened twice....
    On my credit report, my old address is listed as a business too although my work was not at home..I'd love to know where all of these places are getting this wrong information.
