    Business name question / Name Spam

    I'm doing local SEO for a dentist and her business name is her own name (First name + Last name).

    Do solid citation building + GMB optimization + Couple reviews can beat Name spam on Google map today ?

    If I ask , it's because on the local map pack, each top competitor included keywords on their name. It's like "Dentist - Doctor X - City" or only "Dentist - Doctor X".
    Is it wrong to do the same for my client ?

    Thanks you

    Re: Business name question / Name Spam

    According to the guidelines, you aren't supposed to add the city to the title unless it's a part of the actual business name.

    I would suggest fixing the names of the competitors who have it that shouldn't. For more on that, see this article: The Ultimate Guide to Fighting Spam on Google Maps - Sterling Sky Inc
