Business listing

My business listing was suspended before I could verify it. I have the code but no way to enter it. Can someone please look at this and help resolve?


The G+ page gives me a message that says "Your page has been blocked since it has been identified as possible spam. To unblock your page, please verify it." - but I'm unable to verify as it's suspended?










Thanks in advance


*EDITED - removed business info.

Hi Patrick, 


in most of the cases- this happens if  someone is editing / adding the business information during the verification process. ( after you requested for the postcard).  If you haven´t made any edits- you can simply contact the support for gmb in your country and they will be able to fix it, but anyway- i think that you will have to go through the verification process one more time. 


If you have made any business changes during this verification period- i would better advise you to completely delete this local page, create a new one and request for the verification code one more time. This will take less time as contacting the support to change the state of your local page - as you will have to go through the verification process one more time. 


Bet Regards,

Hi @Patrick K


Do you actually have a permanent unit at that address?


The reason I ask is that it may have been triggered because it is also linked to virtual offices and mailboxes, which are against guidelines.

Hi, yes we are permanently located here in our workshop. I will take the
previous advice and start again and see how that works out before taking
this one further, I've raised too many tickets with no real response
already! Cheers!
