Google My Business spam is not new. But in 2019, map spam is on hyperdrive! GMB Product Expert Jason Brown takes us through the lawyer/attorney map spam lead generation network that appeared overnight and spread like wildfire across the U.S. He shares his expertise in fake listings and reviews, so you can:

  • Monitor listings in your local area
  • Identify fake listings and shady practices by lead gen companies and others
  • Report fake listings and reviews using Google’s new Business Redressal Complaint form

Dig into the lawyer listing spam that consumed SEO community discussion groups, was the subject of the Wall Street Journal and referenced in Congress’ anti-trust hearings. And, Jason will show you how to properly document and report GMB spam to keep your business’ or your clients’ rankings and traffic intact.
