I've requested verification code many times and never received a card

Now I see a message :

Your page has been blocked since it has been identified as possible spam. To unblock your page, please verify it

And asking me to verify it

How can I prove it's a legit business?

Regards

Hi @Faisal A

 

You're not going to have much luck with that since it's the same address and phone as your Birmingham Security Services page. How many businesses do you have using that contact info anyway?

Hi @Faisal A

 

I would say this is because there is a business at that address with the same tel number already.

 

https://plus.google.com/105623468392408920815/about

 

Plus another attempted one using that same number in London

You can appeal the decision in the Red Suspended bar in your business listing page

Thank you guys

 

I've deleted the listing till I get it's own local phone number.

The company is  a cleaning company and part of Birmingham Security Services as a trading name so I am using the same number, now but if Google thinks that's spam I have to delete the listing in case it affects my main registered company listing.

Regards

Faisal

Thanks Darko,

Birmingham Security Services is a support services and cleaning services for Birmingham Security Services and run from the same office and we usually provide both services:security guarding services and cleaning for offices and business premises - that's why I kept the same number.

I delete the listing  for a start.

My question is do I have to get separate number for the company knowing they are run from the same office to get it approved by Google Business Places?

Regards

Faisal

Hi @Faisal A

 

According to guidelines ( and you have just admitted it is a service of the main business) you cannot have a business page for a service.

 

1 business page per business, not services.
