How can I get Google to Look at Our Business with fresh eyes. We are not spam and have been in business for a long time. We were the first business in our industry to have a website and listing on Google. When we started our Google Places listing in 2008 we were on top the first day. That's because no one had a listing in our category of business. Now that there is 20 companies trying to get on top in our category. We are suspended do to spam. We are not spam. We have a huge internet presents but only one business listing on Google. Why is this spam. Why? Can someone look at our business and help me to understand what is spam? PLEASE.  Our Business name is Gold Coast Cab. We are located in Oxnard CA. USA. Please Help?

Hi @Jim C


Sorry, but I don't think you only created 1 business listing


I found the original Gold Coast Cabs ( possible a second ), then Taxi Cabs Ventura and 2 for Easy Ride Taxis

Hi Tim, Thank you for your reply. I clicked on the links but get this
message. 404 The requested URL was not found on this server.
I listed these business names years ago and have removed the Taxi Cabs
Ventura Listing on Google over a year ago. I don't know where you found
this listing. When I do a search for Gold Coast Cab I don't see any of
these links you listed. (How can I have these page you found deleted.) I
deleted everything I can from my end even the accounts that was used to
create these business names and listings. How is it possible to still find
them. Can google close them down for me. Please Advise.

Also is it spam to have more than one organic website listed on the net.
They are not listed at GMB. I have these sites up and running organically.
list is below.
and many more sites and domain names up and running. Is
this considered spam. These domain names and websites are not listed on
Google My Business. I only have one GMB listing and it is under suspension.
Please help with advise. I am open ears. Again Thank you for your reply.
Jim Gold Coast Cab.
