My business is:

Roger's Locksmith Service

1600 Elyria Rd.

McPherson, KS  67460

Phone: (620)242-2338

Google+ URL: https://business.google.com/b/117150991815954278915/dashboard/l/03426344809414886132?utm_campaign=My...

 

I have been in business as a locksmith for over 1.5 years.  I service customers at their location.  I've been trying to set up a "Service-area business" listing on google for a while now, but each time I put in the verification code my business listing has this message: "Google has suspended your page due to quality issues."  I've read just about all the requirements that Google has online and cannot find the problem.  I've spoken with a Google representative twice now and all they say is that they'll get back with me the next day.  But all I get the next day is the exact same email that says:

 

"Thanks for letting us know about getting your Roger's Locksmith Service business information up on Google Maps. We've looked at your account and it looks like your business is not eligible for display on Google Maps per our quality guidelines. Check out our quality guidelines at this link to see what types of businesses we're looking for on Google Maps.

While I understand that this can be frustrating, we want to make sure that your business identity is accurately represented on Google, which ultimately helps improve how real users and potential customers interact with your business in the online world.

If you have any questions about this information, feel free to respond to this email - I'm happy to help clarify!  Thank you for your understanding and have a great day!"

 

I've asked more questions, but they just resend me the exact same email.

 

One rep said that I should set up a "Brand" page, but I don't sell anything online, I provide a door to door service, like a plumber or electrician.

 

Does anyone know why I wouldn't be allowed to set up a "service area" listing?  Am I doing something wrong or is there a glitch in the system?

It's for me pretty clear and proving kind of  spam:

Why?:
Here we go:
searching for ""Roger's Locksmith Service" McPherson, kansas" I get a business displayed:
This one here;
Becker Lock & Key  
Schlüsseldienst
Adresse: 315 E Euclid St, McPherson, KS 67460, Vereinigte Staaten
Telefon: +1 620-241-5991

I at first thought about an error of GoogleSearch.
But there ist't.

I did an other seach for "(620)-241-5991" + "(620) 242-2338"
or for Rogers Locksmith Service "(620)-241-5991"  and what do I get:?

Getting lots of resuts showing your business name Rogers Locksmith Service and "(620)-241-5991" in relation

Thank you for response, but this is not spam. My business is listed
successfully on several websites such as:
https://www.yelp.com/biz/rogers-locksmith-service-mcpherson
https://www.facebook.com/rogerslocks
bingplaces.com
my personal page @ rogersls.com

I can give several local professional references who will vouch for the
existance of my business:
Johnson Electric - Jeff Johnson - owner: (620) 241-5286
*LAMCO* property management company: (620) 241-2315
Horizon Real Estate Services - Kristi Fowler: 620) 241-8300
and plenty more.

Can you please help me figure out what I'm doing thats causing my listing
to be rejected?

The (620)241-5991 phone number belonged to Becker Lock and Key, but that business has closed and I purchased the phone number. Is that what may be causing the problem? Should I delete it from my listings?

I have removed my secondary phone number (620-241-5991) from my listing.  Does that help?

Hi Dear : Looks they are grabbing only , when your business got at success then they remove your listing by complaining something . .  what i feel it is .. same thing happens with us . even they not telling us the reason .
