Loading... Be Patient!

I wanted to reach out to the ADM community regarding an issue that was brought to my attention today from some dealers.

Looks like businesses are seeing that they have lost +1's on their Google+ page overnight.

This Google product forum confirms the very recent hit to pages:!topic/webmasters/zKsjyJ620cI

A user on this forum stated possible causes:

1. Never use 1 ip to vote all the +1s for your website.
2. Never use same accounts voting 5 different sites at the same time. This looks suspicious for google.
3. Google has a bad habit of removing accounts if they are kept inactive for a long time. This can lead to removal of plus +1s.

If you have a business page, have your +1's taken a hit? 

  • post the URL to your page in the comments below
  • how many +1's did you lose?
  • what are you current tactics to gain +1's?

Let's troubleshoot together to see if there has been a Google+ update. All thoughts and comments are welcomed!
