    How Does a Business Deal with Fake Reviews?

    This is like Local Search Groundhog Day for me. 4 Fake Reviews this morning. I sent DM to GMB Support and replied to all the reviews and flagged them as ad spam. That's 16 fake reviews since Sat.Aug31st, it's only Sept26th. Has anyone ever seen anything like this with a client before??

    I feel your pain. These fake reviews are unethical and hurt businesses. I made the above 2 Google Docs viewable to anyone. See if you can use any of the info for your clients. The only way to beat terrible behaviours is when more good people share ways to combat them. We don't have time to deal...

Review profiles wth zero review history, so how do we know if a...
