Fixing a duplicate suspended GMB listing

In some cases, duplicates can be a good thing. But when it comes to Google My Business accounts, having an account marked as a duplicate can cause a lot of headaches for the account manager.

A GMB account can become duplicated if another business is at the same address. A duplicate GMB will result in an account suspension.

You can try the following steps to resolve the issue when this happens.

Click on the account that is marked duplicate, and then learn more. It will take you to a different screen. Then you will be asked if the business is in another account. If you say yes, the next thing you will be asked is if you'd like to transfer over to another account and then transfer it over.

However, say no if you'd rather keep the account the same. It will ask you if you can contact the account manager. If you are the account manager or have permission to change the account, say yes.

In the next step, Google will ask you if you have submitted a reinstatement request. Select no if you haven't. Google then will ask if you're the company's owner or the account. Click yes if you are. Then it will ask you if you read the quality guidelines, select yes if you did.

The next question will be if your business has a fixed address. If this is the case, click yes. Google will then ask you to verify that the address is accurate. Select yes. Your following few questions will be about how you do business with your customers, whether you deal with them face to face or not. Answer accordingly to your business model.

After you answer those questions, you are brought to a form where you must fill out some information such as your name, the e-mail address of the GMB account, the business's name, and phone number.

There is also a box for you to add any additional information and an option to add any pictures. The more information you give, the stronger your case will be. Photos containing your business name, address, phone number are highly recommended.

Double-check to ensure everything you have entered is correct before clicking the submit button. You will then receive an e-mail telling you your request has been submitted.

Depending on how many requests Google has received, the timing on when your account reinstatement will vary from 24 hours to two weeks. That's why it's crucial to ensure the information you have entered is correct.

If all these steps are overwhelming and you're still unclear of what to do, contact the experts at The Computer Geek. We specialize in websites and more. Visit our website for more information on our services or call us at (905)426-1784.

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.
