Canadian Spammers and How to Find Them

When looking at GMB profiles in the states, we can check the Secretary of State Business Profiles to find their true name. With this information, we can make edits to company name on GMB without fear of being misguided.


However, business names are harder to find in Canada! It is my understanding that we have to pay the Government in order to get this information.


Currently, my strategy is going to the company website and looking at their homepage, contact page and footer to see if it matches their GMB Listing. Many times this works, but some companies are not consistent with their name.


Sometimes they call themselves A & B Company or A & B Company New York. So, it is hard to say for certain what their true name is and then make the edit in Maps.


Does anyone else experience this hurdle in Canada? How do you Spam fight these companies with relaxed branding guidelines?
