Nearly on daily basis I ship in edits on Google My Enterprise pages which have dedicated one social gathering foul or one other, however that is the primary I’ve seen Google exit of its technique to encourage these edits:
It was a partial edit of a enterprise’s title, by which I eliminated a single stuffed-in key phrase. I discover two issues attention-grabbing, a minimum of on this case. The primary is that I made that edit again in 2018. The second is that that edit has caught for nearly 3 years, despite the fact that it might have been simple for the enterprise so as to add again within the key phrase. Typically whenever you make a Google Maps edit on the title of GMB web page and Google agrees along with your edit and makes the change, the enterprise simply modifications the title again to no matter it was, and Google doesn’t do something about it. Typically it turns into a tug of conflict.
I wasn’t the primary to note this; it’s reported in this tweet from final month.
Acquired an e-mail replace from @googlemaps. It says “Your reported downside is making a distinction”
“You modified the title of Spicy Ramna Restaurant, which has now been seen over 2,000,000 instances. Thanks for making such a beneficial edit to the map.” #localguides #googlemaps pic.twitter.com/gtZFqRfkEC

However that’s it. I haven’t seen anybody else point out it but, nor have I gotten related nudges from Google on different edits.
Thus far, Google doesn’t appear to cheer recently-submitted, recently-approved edits. You’d assume if that Google actually wished to encourage extra Mapspam policing you’d get emails on recent edits, the identical means Google emails you on a regular basis about photographs and evaluations you posted.
After all, just some sorts of Google Maps anti-spam edits may even get 80,000 views. A very bogus GMB web page that you simply get eliminated now not will get any views, in fact. I suppose these kinds of edits could be more durable to encourage, despite the fact that faux GMB pages are the most damaging sort of Google Maps spam by far.
Presumably you could possibly get the identical sort of e-mail should you make a “common” edit unrelated to spam, like on a enterprise’s hours, however discover the topic line of the e-mail: “Your reported downside is making a distinction.” Appears to have a spam-control taste to it.
Have you ever seen this earlier than? In that case, when, and for what sort of Google Maps edit?
What do you assume Google is aiming for right here, precisely?
Go away a remark!
