Business listed as "PERMANENTLY CLOSED" on google local and NOT

PLEASE HELP!

 

I noticed that incoming calls had slowed down the last few weeks and when I went to troll to find out why I came across that Google Local has us marked as "PERMANENTLY CLOSED." For years we've been at the top of the local page and now at the bottom. We are not closed for business. I clicked on the "report" button a few times and nothing happened, I also contacted googlemybiz on twitter with no reply. We are also verified with Google Business. 

 

WHAT CAN I DO TO REMOVE THE "PERMANENTLY CLOSED"????

Hi @Chris V,

 

I have submitted a request to remove the Permanently Closed status. 

 

It should take care of it soon. 

 

Do you have your website linked to your G+ page? Is all of the other info in the listing correct? 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi @Chris V,

 

You are very welcome. 

 

I would add a link to it on your website, too. You could add this META Tag to your website code (in the header).

 

 

<link href="https://plus.google.com/+Chitownpartybus/" name="publisher"/>

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
