Hi All,

Is anyone else experiencing an unprecedented amount of GBP suspensions? I had 3 separate profiles suspend after doing a post on the account. Other accounts are suspending after making changes to business hours or main categories.

These are across 3 different countries and listings are managed by different Users (in different countries, different logins etc).

Its been about 1-2 weeks of this.

Is this the same for any other agencies?

Thanks ahead!

I experienced a slight improvement in the situation. GBP are much less frequently suspended for editing (we do testing every few days) as well as less frequently suspended immediately after verification.

Anyone noticed anything similar?

Yes they are suspending as soon as the post card pin is entered. Then they force a video verification. Makes no sense. All recently. Handful. They are also very sloowwwwwwwww.

I suspect the postcard-to-suspension pipeline is an undesirable side effect of introducing a change in the way different modes of validation are favored. I.E. the postcards sent before the "switch" to prioritize video make for validations that are no longer considered correct by the algorithm, hence the instant suspension.

Finally getting some traction on our side. Our agency saw a huge flux in suspensions +40%. 114 down in the last months now down to 99 with a good line of communication of google support. I hope we are at the tail end of this. We had to submit the storefront/signage again via email instead of the reinstatement form online.

Anyone else noticing a decrease in this rash of unexplained and, if you will, oversensitive GBP suspensions?

A little bit, but we are still seeing suspension for tiny edits/verifications.

Thanks for that update on what you are seeing!

Follow up question have you seen this issue of suspensions also come up if you are ONLY updating/changing images or adding Google Posts?


For now I am holding off on everything

To provide some insight: I was just able to change service categories on a verified GBP of mine. The change showed "under review" for a few minutes and was successfully changed. No need to re-verify.

Sorry for not clarifying.

We had a huge uptick in suspensions this month. The number of new suspensions went up to 117. After communication and some work, we got the suspensions down to only 28.
