Google Places rejected my location change

 11:09 am on Feb 6, 2012 (gmt 0)

I have Google related queries. Actually I added my company info in GooglePlaces about 2 yrs back. Now my office location changed. I mean office moved from one location to another. So 3 days back I edited my details for review and re-inclusion in Google Places. But Today I have seen the status "Rejected" also suspended my account. I did not get the reason explained and also did not get the concerned person id i.e. Google Executive ID, so that I can contact him/her.

Can anyone help to solve this issue?

Report the old listing and provide your phone number so that they can call you to check. Did they suspend the listing or your Google Account?

Although I haven't had your kind of experience, I had lost a listing because they merged another business' data because they used to occupy that office before I did. IOW, my contents were merged but the listing was still in their name. (I had moved from another place to there)

Google does not supply the reason when they reject or suspend your listing. And they also don't give you a contact person or # to call.

But you don't get rejected simply for moving.

The most common reasons for rejected or suspended listings are adding a keyword, city or tag line to your business name (title field.) Or if you add city, state or other GEO keywords to your categories.

Could you please check your listing for any of those violations and let me know. Then if that's not the issue we'll go a little deeper.

did you take any action to get your account or listing restored?

As far as I remember I only resubmitted. I searched for mail/forums where I can tell my problems but did not get any. Only posted the problems in few webmasters forums like this.

you created a new account?
submitted a new listing?
reclaimed the old listing?
which method did you use to verify ownership?

Having written the above, I checked my listings and to my horror, my data is mixed into three separate businesses, notably my cell phone number shown against some other company (might explain some odd calls)! This I need to fix asap.
