I just created my business listing and was suspended even before verification for quality issues.

 

 I have a website, address, phone, etc...

 

I set the business as "I serve customers in their location"

 

I have my business license to prove it's a legitimate business, can anyone help with this issue?

 

Thanks!

I would really like to understand what the hell is going on when I receive a letter in the mail asking me to update my business information and then, when I do so, my account is suspended?????????

You tell me to fix the info. I fix the info. YOU SUSPEND MY ACCOUNT.

Would Mr Rich Flanagan, Head of Small Business Marketing, Google Australia like to call me and explain?

Hi @Jumbo L
Frustrating...no doubt. I think the issue may be the fact it is locksmithing. As you know, the problems with fake locksmiths on Google has been rampant in your business. 

Google started implementing an ADVANCED VERIFICATION for locksmiths. The entire advanced verification process for locksmiths was explained in this Google My Business help article.

Hope this helps,

Best of success,

Hey @Wayne C,

 

Interesting... I am aware of the spammy nature of the locksmith business, that's why I made sure to register my business with the state of Colorado.

 

In the information you posted it clearly states that, "To be eligible for advanced verification... [for] locksmith listing based in the Greater San Diego or Los Angeles area"

 

However, I am in Denver, Colorado.

 

Can anyone help me with this verification issue? I have all the necessary documentation.

 

Thanks.

You are right about that...sorry. Shouldve looked closer.
Have you tried calling Google? Google My Business Helpline 1-844-491-9665 Hours: Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm EST. When you do call, grab a drink and a book...you may wait for a while. :)

Here is a good article I can direct you to:

The website URL you've included doesn't list the address. Plus it's a spam directory. How many other locksmiths have used that same generic page? Enough that it's already blacklisted.

 

Get your own, real website with your own domain and make sure the address and phone number are on the page. If you can't do that, delete the website address entirely, then ask for review.

If you checked the website, https://www.jumbolocksmith.com/locksmith-denver-co/ , The phone number is at the header, and the address is clearly stated at the footer under Contact Us
