Hi @TomW,
 
I was wondering if you could please help me report some spam locksmith listings in my local area. Below are 3 different companies that seem to be abusing  google business listings.
 
If there is anything else you may need please let me know.
 
Many Thanks,
 
Paul

Sorry for the delay here. I have been swamped at work and didn't get a chance to respond to a lot of the threads I was tagged in.

 

Can you please provide the URL to each listing on Maps?  I need this to make sure I have the right listing.

 

Also, what is wrong with the last one (sans souci)? I see the others are multiple listings for the same company but wasn't sure what the issue was with this one.

I believe Google already fixed the first few so I will submit another report. If you have more to add after this, please start a new thread.

Hi @JoyHawkins, just wondering if you have received any feedback on these listings?

 

I'm assuming google don't believe they are spam listings?

Hey Paul,

 

I think it's possibly because the thread didn't clarify which listing should be removed.  Can you post them in this format?

 

Business Name

Legit Listing (link to listing on Google Maps)

Spam Listing that should be removed

Explanation for why they are the same company (ex: same phone number, same website)

 

 

Business Name 2

Legit Listing

Spam Listing that should be removed

Explanation for why they are the same company (ex: same phone number, same website)
