Google is sending out emails that warn you that your "Unpublished Business Profiles will be deleted in 30 days." Don't panic - these listings that you may have created but never published. Most of the time, you'll notice that the email came to a different Gmail address than the one that "owns" your verified listing - we've all started creating a listing only to figure out we're logged into the wrong account.

If for whatever reason you want to KEEP these listings -you'll need to take steps to get them published & verified. Generally, they're accidents or mistakes - and them disappearing will actually clean things up.

The wording on these emails has caused a few to panic - but there's no need.

Hi!

We have an agency dashboard with several unpublished listings that we are actively working with customers to get verified. Do we know if this is all unpublished or simply unpublished and inactive?

Hi Chjolly,
I believe these are only dormant, not even pending, unpublished listings - but I will see if I can get confirmation on that.
