Last Wednesday on May 8th, 2013 I logged into my Google+ business page and found a message…“Your Google+ page is suspended”. WHAT? I read further. “The text, images, or other content on your Google+ page was flagged for violating the Google+ User Content and Conduct Policy.” I couldn’t imagine what on my page would be violating their policy. Here is an image of the message.
View my video below to get details of the process to get your Google+ page reactivated and other interesting information.
I read over the User Content and Conduct Policy several times and I don’t see how my cover image is a violation. I went down the list.
I took the image myself so that isn’t an issue.
Not illegal activities.
Not malicious products
Not hate speech.
Not personal info.
Not account hijacking
Nothing to do with child safety.
Not using ranking manipulation
Not sexually explicit
Not harassing or bullying
Not impersonation or deceptive behavior
Not profile name issue
Not regulated goods or services
Not contests or promotions
This is where you go to submit to their support. It is in group format. The people are volunteers and it does take time and patience and time and more time. https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/google-plus-discuss
I have been doing a lot of research on Google+ page suspension. There is a lot of information out there on the real name issue, but nothing on cover image suspensions. I am still in the middle of this process and am still finding out why (or trying to find out) they didn’t like my image. I will be posting updates as I get more information.
