New Gold Medal Showing Up in Google Local Search Results??

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am seeing a gold medal with a "1" in the center of it showing up in a West Palm Beach, FL local search result for a Medical Malpractice Lawyer. Is this new? I can't find any reference to it in any of the forums or articles. 

 

If it is indeed new does anyone know how to go about getting it? Could it be they are just adding this to their business name and getting it to show up? Any thoughts on that being legit? 

 

Any info is appreciated!

Hey Josh,

 

Yes they just added it to their name. 2nd time I've seen this happen today. It's a new kind of spam. You aren't supposed to add anything to the actual business name.

 

I edited it out but it might take a couple others as well before it actually gets removed.

I also suggested the edit to "Percy Martinez Law Office". They have multiple other listings with the same name in Orlando and Miami.

I know right! I reverse image searched that medal picture and was like wow, Google bought that on a stock photography site... But now I realize. Maybe I could suggest a biz name edit with a donkey icon before the name lol.
