Google My Business Now Allows Deleted Plus Pages to Be Recovered

Kaleh Kohler, a top contributor in the Google And Your Business Forum and a very astute student of all things Google Plus, has pointed out a new feature of Google My Business (aka Google Pages Dashoard) that allows the user to recover (undelete) and manage pages that have been deleted.

It would appear that it only works on Pages that are deleted subsequent to the rollout of this feature and it doesn’t seem that page deleted earlier are seen (I could be wrong about this). Once a request is made to undelete a page, the page reappears in the dashboard almost immediately.

This is welcome one to anyone that has inadvertently deleted the wrong page.

  1. The first question that comes to mind is if a page is recovered that was already verified, will verification remain? I would assume not.

    My colleague also pointed out that if a business has multiple locations, but the same business name is used for all of them, selecting the right location to recover is not intuitive.

  2. @Kerry I use a really basic solution to deleting the right page when faced with a several with the same profile pic and name. I change the profile image of the page I want to delete because as you point out, selecting the right page is not intuitive and you have very little detail.
    So far, I’ve not deleted a page a shouldn’t but this new feature will be very handy just in case!
