Hello

I deleted my GooglePlus Business page as we had false reviews posted and Google would not remove them after my request. These negative reviews are affecting my small business. Even though I have deleted my business page, everything still seems to be live. How is this possible?

@Kelly H,

Having negative and fake review can be frustrating. 

 

Deleting the listing from Google My Business (or the G+ page associated with it) will not remove the listing from Google or Google Maps. Google keeps this information around as it is useful to users. There is no way to remove an actual business just because of negative reviews. 

 

More importantly, having control over your listing allows you to respond to the reviews.
