Annnnd GMB's incompetence strikes again. My location was suspended some time today. 's has been suspended for over a week and a client's location was suspended today. UGH

Good News: That new call back form works, they call back ASAP. Bad News: You go straight into a hold cue, so far only a few minutes. Will report final hold length.

Looks like they are ready for this to not go as planned. The success message says if you don't speak to someone to try again.

I just read through all of the emails about suspensions and reinstatements since September, rep seems a little shook that it's happened this many times. I'll be honest, so far this is one of the single best service interactions I've had with GMB.

GMB supervisor just told me that GMB doesn't allow posts to link to a website and that doing so can lead to a suspension. Ummmm.

I highlighted that to him. He was very adamant that the verbiage "automated or distracting content" was in reference to all links of any kind. I linked to my latest blog post:

I got a lot of energetic urgency in my voice and told him they need to run that up the chain before tens of thousands of businesses around the globe get suspended and Google gets a huge PR blackeye while spammers make exact match keyword names and rank #1.
