I'm not sure what my google+url is

 

I was in the midst of verifying my business using the postcard that I received when my screen suddenly said that my business was suspended.  I don't understand why that would be.  Is it because I have another e-mail address other than my gmail address?

Hi @Gina C

 

Did you try to make any edits while you were waiting on the verification postcard? That will usually trigger something as Google is trying to verify the information you originally entered to represent that business, if you haven't verified and you make any changes, Google flags that as suspicious as it could seem that you did not provide all of the information or the accurate information to begin with.

 

Regardless of the reason for the suspension, the best advice I can give you regarding a suspended listing is to make sure that you have your business information as accurate and up to date as possible. Ensure that you have left as few blanks as possible everywhere that Google has prompted for information regarding your business, (photos need to be uploaded that show either the business at its listed location or the vehicle that your business operates out of if you are a service area business, your address needs to be correctly listed or hidden if a service area business, you need to ensure there are no existing duplicate pages, etc.) Make sure if you have a business website that the information you are providing to Google matches the information listed on that website, as Google will check there when reviewing your request to be reinstated.

 

Any information you can add or upload that helps validate your legitimacy as a business is helpful when Google is reviewing a page for reinstatement.

 

Also, this article is a great resource for some insight as to why pages get suspended by Google. After you have gathered as much supporting evidence as possible and have reviewed the guidelines to make sure you aren't in violation, then you can proceed with submitting a reinstatement request for Google to review.
