Hey Guys,

Looking for advice. I’ve tried reporting to google several Times however, google makes you jump through hoops just to report something then it seems like it just gets lost in the millions of reports they probably receive. I’m in the locksmith industry and run a legit business & abide by googles rules having only one service area listing. However I’m getting buried by competition who have multiple. This one guys in particular has 5+ locations all in the same county. He builds new websites and gets new phone numbers for each listing however goes by the same name and if you call the number it all goes to the same call center or office they have. I’ve given up as it seems he has a new listing pop up almost every few weeks. These are the 5 I can find in my county but he also does this elsewhere. Can anyone help!?

@keyserholiday How long should I expect to wait for the impact of the redressal form? I'm now on my second round of forms reporting exactly the same businesses that I did back in September to no effect. Am I just not patient enough?

I guess I am not following what these people are doing wrong. Locksmithy is a mobile business. Is the complaint that they have a seperate GBP for each of these target locations? They are clearly a SAB right?
