Brodie Clark posted on Twitter that he received an email from Google that one or some of his Google+ pages for a business is being shut down within 30 days. Of course, this should come as no surprise to anyone. Here is the email:

Hello,

It looks like the Google+ page for [business name] has not been used in a while. To simplify your Google My Business listing, we will be removing this additional page from our system in 30 days.

This change won’t affect your Google My Business listing – you can still be found on Google Search and Maps. You can download a copy of your old content before it’s deleted by visiting this page. Alternatively, you can post or comment on someone else’s post within 30 days to keep your Google+ page active.

Thank you, Your Google My Business team

I did not get any of these emails yet but I do try to keep up my activity on my Google+ pages. Yes, I am holding out and trying to keep using them even though no one lives there.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
