Ben Fisher noticed that the Google My Business local business reinstatement request form added a new field. You can now upload a file that shows proof that your business should be reinstated in Google My Business. The form added the ability to upload a file, like a PDF or screen shot, with such proof.
Here is a link to the reinstatement request form that first takes you through a series of questions before it gives you the form. But once you get to the form, you will see at the bottom, this box to upload a file for “proof.”
Ben shared this on Twitter and it seems like this is a big win for the local SEO folks.
Forum discussion at Twitter.
GMB News: This may be a test. But, today I get a reinstatement email reply that had all of the data I sent in on the form. You have no idea how long I have been fighting for this! #WinForMultiLocationAccounts#localseo @rustybrick pic.twitter.com/fZhfAyz6y0
