With Google Map Maker now available again, it’s extremely important to keep an eye on the information listed on your Google+ page. Map Maker allows strangers to request edits to Google+ pages not controlled by them. The changes are reviewed by the Google support team, but this does not mean that you are safe from incorrect changes being made to your page.
A very common issue with Google+ is business pages being marked as ‘Permanently Closed’. This gets displayed in a large red banner when someone searched for your business, so it is a top priority to get this removed if it is incorrect. Many business owners who have suffered from this problem have reported huge drops in sales and several phone calls from customers in a state of panic.
Here is an example of what it looks like:
As you can see in the screenshot above, the red banner has a little white arrow next to ‘Permanently closed’. Click on the arrow and then click report. This will send a report to Google that you have requested for the business to be marked as open again.
The gif below shows the basic steps:
This option tends to work much quicker but does require more of your time. By clicking this link you can request a call with a member of the Google support team. Simply explain that your Google+ page has been marked as closed and that you wish to mark it as open.
