May I ask why you updated the business name and address? Did you move and rebrand the company?


Usually, after you change the business address, you will need to reverify it. If you changed the business name at the same time, you many have tripped a red flag. 


have you attempted to contact GMB Support for assistance?

If you would like to try and contact Google Business you can follow the steps below to receive a call or chat (during normal business hours)


Google Business Help >Need More Help (top right corner)>Ownership or Access to my business>Other Problem>


Under new pop up window select "Listings" under the first option "About ownership and access levels for listings "


Scroll to bottom of this page and you will see phone and email contact. 


This only works during business hours which I believe are M-F 9am-5pm PST
