Google Places Listings Not Showing

Google Places Listings Not Showing

Blog Google Algo Update Google Places News SEO

Anyone noticed anything strange about the local results today? We noticed whilst during our daily checks that for some locations and search terms that there are no local listings showing.

It’s not effecting every search term or locality yet but certainly enough to post about. Could be just a glitch with Google making some changes.

It’s very unlikely they will be dropped altogether.

But as I write this I see more and more search terms with no local results.

I am sure a lot of people are going to be wondering what the hell is going on, but we will probably find out soon enough.

My guess is a layout change to the local listings is coming. It’s probably related to this update

How to remove a fake Google Places Review

How to remove a fake Google Places Review

Google Places

You work hard to market your business online, blood sweat and tears no doubt then some dirty little urchin writes a negative review on Google Places (Google+) about your business and you feel lost and don’t know what action to take.

Here I am going to share with you how you can potentially have negative reviews especially fake ones removed.

First of all let’s look at a popular blog our sister site published some years ago about removing fake google places reviews.

Since that blog gets a lot of traffic and we get enquiries daily I have decided to write a new blog which covers the latest ways to hopefully get negative reviews removed from Google Places.

However that link we posted no longer works as it used to and i’m not sure it will be dealt with by Google for this matter.

This is how you remove unwanted Google Places reviews

I want to start by saying this is not guaranteed to work but is your best chance at getting a fake/false review taken down.

5 Step Process to Requesting Google to Remove Reviews

  1. Go to
  2. Click on ‘Contact Us’
  3. Select ‘Photos, reviews, or business summaries’
  4. Click on ‘Inappropriate reviews’
  5. Select ‘Email’ and fill out the form. I recommend selecting the option to have someone call you back so you can talk through why you consider the review to be inappropriate.

Hopefully if you have backed up your reason why the review should be taken down such as ‘business not yet trading’ ‘no records of any customer under this name’ ‘we are taking legal action regarding this individual who is posting false reviews’ – then you have a good chance it will be removed.

Now we’ve shared that with you if you would be so kind as to spread the word and share on your websites/blogs/social media with a mention of our blog. Dont forget to follow us on twitter @seotwentyone

Remember you heard it here first!

We do not currently support this location

Blog Google Places SEO Website Optimization

Google Places listings owners may be seeing the following error this morning ‘We do not currently support this location’.

It comes after another glitch was reported by thousands of business owners when their listings dropped over night.

We’ve seen this glitch before and it won’t be the last time.


Why do I see We do not currently support this location

Google is always working behind the scenes and when they make a change it usually means the data set is moved at least temporarily. It usually sorts itself out or you can try and press edit on your Google Places listing and Submit to ping the listing.

This rarely works immediately these days but in the meantime until we or Google find a fix hang tight, stay tuned and we’ll get more information across as soon as we have it.



Uodate: Google fixed itself on this occasion. You’re listing should be showing again.
