Best Practices For Submitting Spam Edits On Google Maps?

Caroline S

Hi everyone,

I've been working on tackling some maps spam for clients in different regions of the USA. Most of the spam I'm finding consists of service area businesses whose addresses show they are working out of private homes or other business locations (grocery stores, funeral homes, etc.) or keyword stuffing in their names. I've been either editing the names of the businesses or trying to get them "removed - private place or home". Since I'm doing all of this under the same email address within a short period of time for lots of different locations, I wanted to make sure I wasn't in danger of being flagged/banned for submitting so much spam. Is there a "best practices" way to go about this?

Does anyone have any experience or insight?
