Today when I tried to access the Google+ page for our client's business ServiceMaster of Bel Air (link: https://plus.google.com/b/103069293111946361229/+ServiceMasterOfBelAir/posts
), the following message appeared at the top of the screen in red:
"Your page has been blocked since it has been identified as possible spam. To unblock your page, please verify it."
First off, the page is not spam. It is the official Google+ page for the business ServiceMaster of Bel Air, and I try to post to it weekly. In actuality it sees updates maybe 2-3 times a month.
I attempted to unblock the page by clicking the Verify button.
Next, Google asked me "Is this your business?" with the following options:
ServiceMaster of Bel Air
Address hidden for privacy (sic)
No, this is not my business
Keep the information I entered
I clicked the top option with ServiceMaster's details, because that is the business that corresponds to the Google+ page. I then received the following message:
Someone else has already verified this listing
This listing has already been verified by another user. If you want to add this listing to your account, you can make a request that will be sent to the current verified user.
My only options were Request Ownership or Cancel, so I clicked Request Ownership, even though the listing should be verified by my account.
The next page said:
Request to change listing ownership
Is this listing verified in another account which you can control?
I wasn't sure what to click here, since the listing should be verified in my account. So first I tried clicking Yes, which gave me the following message: "You can use our ownership transfer process to transfer ownership to a new account." I clicked on the link, which didn't seem to apply to me since the listing is verified in my account.
So I went backwards, and tried clicking No.
Google then asked me the question "Is this listing verified by a user whom you're able to contact?" Well, yes... that person being me? So I wasn't sure what to click here. First I tried clicking Yes, which gave me the following message "Please contact the current listing owner to add you as a manager or to transfer ownership." Effectively the same answer as above. Not sure how I add myself as a manager when I'm already a manager, or transfer ownership when I'm already the owner.
So I went back, and tried clicking No to answer the question "Is this listing verified by a user whom you're able to contact?" The prompts then dead-ended at that point.
Can someone please help me with getting our Google+ page unblocked? Thank you.
