A prospect is locked into 2010-era thinking and wants to put location and type of business into their GBP business name. In fact he's already done it for his two locations, which otherwise look pretty good. I've explained why this is a bad idea, and the prospect's business is specialized so there's not even a lot of competition that would make keyword stuffing desirable. Normally I'd probably just decline the business and be done with it, but the owner is in one of my business networking groups, so declining would be awkward. Not sure what to say further. I charge a flat monthly fee for GBP maintenance but thinking I should add to any contract that reinstatement etc. would cost extra if the GBPs are suspended because of the keyword stuffing. Are we as SEOs obligated (like attorneys) to do what a client wants even contrary to our advice? I'd appreciate any thoughts on this. Thank you in advance.
