    Multiple listing using virtual locations and or offices are no longer there!

    I submitted 15 gmb listing as does not exist for using virtual offices. 6 we taking down instantly and 9 were marked as pending and later marked as not applied.

    It is obvious in so cases as one location is a nursing home and another is a new business at the address or if you google the location you see all the virtual office listings.

    I have followed the steps, Joy Hawkins guide. What are the next steps?

    You're doing all you can. Flag them, and flag some more. Gotta wait till Google see's and decides.

    Joy/Colan may have other tricks they use. Maybe they'll chime in?

    In addition to the bogus GMB listings, he has 15 sites for 15 cities (ie duilawyer-{city}.com) with the same content, changing only the city name.

    I'd expect that eventually he'll be penalized by Google.

    I would not bet on it. Google seems to automatically reject many such reports. This is a real problem.
