Incomplete Google My Business removal confuses customers

Many websites claim that deleting a Google Business Account is as easy as marking it as "permanently closed" and removing it. But the reality is, that it stays visible to everyone who searches the business. 

If you truly want to get rid of your business from Google Search and Maps, don't bother with outdated methods. We can completely delete your Google My Business listing, and you'll only pay if we succeed. This is especially useful if there are accidentally two profiles for the same business.

I want to reset my Google My Business Account

Have you taken over an existing business or want to reposition your business, but the Google Business Profile listing contains information that's hard to delete? Instead of settling for outdated details and inaccurate reviews on your Google Business Profile listing, we recommend rebuilding it. We'll remove all the previous content and create a new, improved listing with updated Business Profile settings for you.

Why these so-called solutions won't help you

Are you curious about why certain solutions might not be the right fit for your needs? We will explain why these so-called solutions may fall short in addressing issues related to Google Business Profiles. From the risks of improper removal to the importance of following Google's policies, we'll delve into the reasons behind their limitations and explore alternative approaches to safeguarding your online presence.

1. Mark Google Business Account as permanently closed

  1. Click Edit Profile > Business Information > Edit Profile.
  2. If you now click on the Hours > Edit, you can select "Permanently closed".
  3. Save these changes.

If you follow these steps, you can mark a business as closed. But, the Google Business listing will still show up in Google search results.

Disadvantages of this obsolete solution

  • Customers believe the company is closed
  • Negative reviews hurt business
  • The company profile remains public

2. Remove Google Business Profile from your account

  1. Select the three-item menu and click Business Profile Settings.
  2. Go to Remove Business Profile > Remove Profile Content and Managers.
  3. In the third step, select Continue > Remove > Done.

Here's the issue: If you use this solution, your Google My Business entry gets removed from your account, and you can't edit it anymore. But it still shows up in search results and Google Maps. Plus, there's a chance someone else might claim it as their own.

Disadvantages of this alleged solution

  • You lose access to the Business Profile
  • Someone else can take over the Google listing
  • Reviews of the company remain visible

3. Suggest Edit that it doesn’t exist

  1. Find the Business Profile and Click “Suggest edit”.
  2. Click “Close or remove” and then “Doesn’t exist here.”
  3. You will get a confirmation from Google that it’s reviewing your suggestion.

The problem with the “suggest edit”-idea is that it might work but it also may not. It certainly won’t happen over night. If you’re interested in a fast and reliable way to delete your Google Business Profile this is definitely not the right solution for you.

Disadvantages of this so-called solution

  • It will take time and may not work
  • It can be very frustrating
  • In the meantime the profile remains public

4. Seek contact with Google Support

You can contact Google Support to delete a Google My Business Account, but we have found that Google Support doesn't carry out the removal requests at all.

Disadvantages of this obsolete solution

  • It costs you time and nerves
  • It can be very frustrating
  • Does not lead to the desired result

Identifying Fake Deals: How to Spot Them

We want to keep you safe from shady offers. Besides the outdated methods, we'd like to introduce you to other solutions that can mislead business owners. These solutions may not only lead to your Business Profile being suspended but also put your Google User Account at risk of being disabled. Restoring blocked profiles and accounts can be time-consuming, and false business information and fake reviews can continue causing harm.

How to recognize dubious offers

  • Sharing inappropriate media (like explicit content).
  • Frequently changing your business category.
  • Moving to places without a fixed address.
  • Relocating to unusual locations like lakes, oceans, or foreign countries.
  • Providing false company information, such as name or opening hours.

We care about your security and integrity, so we're here to help protect you from these risks.

Whats the difference between a Google Business Profile (formerly Google-My-Business) and Google Maps entry.

The main difference between a Google Business Profile and Maps is that Google Maps shows the location of your business and provides directions. The Google Business Profile, on the other hand, offers all the information that is relevant for users to do business with a company. Google Business and Google Maps use the same data. That's why removing a Google Business Profile removes the associated Google Maps entry simultaneously.
