The most common question I’m currently receiving is about Google My Business Problems. GMB Errors and reports of issues are quite common. But more businesses are finding a small error is now leading to potential suspension. Yet we all make mistakes in life. We all need to learn from them. Google My Business has seemingly up set many people in the past as they will often suspend a business account and yet they give very little reason for doing so. You may of experienced that yourself.
As a Google My Business expert, you may be inclined to watch my recent guide on 13 google my business tips and tricks from my YouTube channel.
One of the biggest errors currently seen is the google my business steps to unlock quotes This cause great frustration as its a known error that appears for so many clients trying to resolve their “View Plan” issue. Additionally don’t miss this superb step by step guide and video to help you get google my business quote button if you havent already enabled it on your listing.
When Google My Business errors do occur, then it gets reported, then Google approach the owner of the business listing and then the owners approach me after watching one of my videos, they are almost always in tears. Saying Google have suspended them, but given no reason. Yet when you drill down into it with them, their is very often a good reason for the warning before a suspension.
What Google My Business Quality Control team have masterfully done by not giving detail away and not telling the owner where the issue is. By keeping it as a broad with the advice being well “read our policy, you have broken the guidelines” This means that business owners are now scrambling around trying to scratch there heads as to what might of upset Google My Business and probably clean up more issues than Google was aware of before asking for a reevaluation.
Thomas Edison didn’t write about Google My Business Errors, but he was rather good at inventing light bulbs. In fact he tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.” Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We now know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.” So keep it positive if things go wrong. Most the time Google My Business team will give you a “Get out of jail free card” before a suspension if things go wrong.
But most business owners just want to know where is the mistakes. Why has a genuine error been given such a harsh sentence. Todays video is to try and help you identify where that error could be.
Everyone should be entitled to learn from their mistakes and have another chance. As Albert Einstein once said “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
