we have our business that has been at #1 for its main KW for 1 year now. We recenty changed our business telephone number and i made this edit only on our google places listing.
Now google are going to send a post card with a pin so we can activate it again? i didnt have to do this the first time round and i only changed the number.
as it stands our google local listing is still showing on google and we are ranking fine. but on our google local under our account it says that the advert is not active and requires the pin before it can be published.
Will our old advert with the old number stay online until we put the PIN in for the new advert with the new phone number?
i am now wondering if google local takes time to update at which point we will drop from #1 in google?
And what are the chances of us going back to #1 when we do finally get the pin?
