Hello team,
I have come around a GBP account which I have been viewing since last few days. I am not quite sure but it seems that they are using some illlegal ways for promoting business and getting more traffic.
Now, if they are using it, how can we know what are the ways they are using for promoting a business.

I am sharing the Google map link of the business below for reference.

For now, I have found out 2 backlinks (shared below) which are spam, the content on the page are not at all relavent for their business.

What's "so illegal" about having backlinks on from irrelevant pages? Is it wrong based on some T&C's of Google?

Consider a condition below:
Suppose. if there is a page or a post with a content on restaurant and from that page if someone has given a backlink for a barber shop. Now in this case the content on the page is not at all relevant to the backlink which is provided.

I personally think it is illegal. What do you think?

Nitesh, are you using the word illegal to describe when someone breaks the rules or guidelines? Or do you actually mean you believe it’s against the law and the government can prosecute you for it? I think there might be a misunderstanding in the use of the word. What you describe may very well be against Google‘s guidelines.
