i have deleted my google+ page why is it still visible

Hi all

I've been having a issue with a completely bogus review that I cannot remove.

The person who has posted it is basically lying and yet Google have not removed it and the reviewer has added more lies. I have now deleted the whole page and planned to create a new page.

However the old one is still visible.

How long will it stay listed?

@Andrew M

this is an intended behavior.

Deleting a page from your dashbaord will not delete the information from Googles datarepository.

It just will change the URL of the page and  displays it as a  unverified page keeping almost all infromation.

Deleting a page by the page owner   just means "I'm not anymore the page owner"

since you now lost the ownership over the page you can't do much anymore but flagging the reviews in question.
But I doubt Google will do anythings as they are not going to decide who is lying.
The only they might do would be checking the reveiw are or are not against their reveiwing guide lines

haha @Andrew M

 

its not anymore "your Google+ page".

Its a G+ page describing your business - sounds strange but this wording makes the liitle difference.

However if you would have been here asking "how can I prevent Google from showing my business on GMaps or on Google with a knowledge graph my  answer would be:

you can't.

The only option you have would reporting the business as closed.
But even this will not prevent you from anybody else reporting the opposite information to Google saying I was there and the business is open and providing a bad service.
