    Google Issues Warning to Business Owners to Stop Spamming

    Google just updated their guidelines and added in a paragraph at the top to warn people that failure to follow the guidelines can get their listing removed.
    Summary: Listings on Google My Business can only be created for businesses that either have a physical location that customers can visit, or that travel to visit customers where they are. Creating a successful listing that won’t be suspended requires avoiding prohibited content, accurately reflecting your business, and complying with the rest of the policies below.
    I covered the changes in detail this morning on our blog.

    Maybe this means Google is moving towards cracking down on spam more? One can hope...
