My website uses a distribution service to ship orders. I don't have a physical location. I also travel a lot for business so I got a mail forwarding address. All the mail goes to that address and then I can have it forwarded wherever I am traveling at.
The other week I tried to add my company to Google Business. For the address, I put the mail forwarding address. I thought this was just to verify the business but since it would likely be listed I wanted to use this forwarding address. After submitting it, I immediately got a warning "this address has been flagged". I won't let me go back and change it.
Anyway, not sure if my exact address has been flagged as being BAD or Google sees this is a forwarding address and doesn't allow any forwarding addresses.
It also made me wonder if Googlebot, who I am 100% sure can see WHOIS records even with privacy set, cares if a mail forwarding address is used with WHOIS? Not even sure WHOIS likes this? Does anybody know if it can affect a site's trust level and prevent it from ranking? I've read YES IT CAN but I'm also wondering why Google doesn't just write me via Search Console to say "you're using a mail forwarding address, please change it".
Am I overthinking this?
