    Reporting SPAM when addresses are hidden... how?

    Hello All!

    I work with a plumbing company in Sacramento. In my research over the years, I've found a serial spammer who resurfaces from time to time.

    Do a Web search for the business name that appears in the listing. If the listing pops a Local Knowledge Panel (LKP) you can often report the listing by clicking on the Feedback link below the LKP.

    Hi vuduseoguy,

    Welcome and thanks for posting.

    Often the one-box branded search knowledge panel has a feedback link under it and you can report it there.

    Here is example for the 1st listing you posted.
