Fake G00gle places listing rank first in the 7 pack in a competitive niche? Any ideas how?

    I typed the keywords "locksmith in Los Angeles" and on the 7 pack the first two listings appeared to be fake. Any idea how they got to be on the first spot without a real website, location, and no reviews?
    The funniest part is that the listings fall down every few days and pop back up to the top of the list.
    Just type these key words and you will see. Any explanation?

    I see real listings at the moment.

    Maybe you could take a screenshot of what you're seeing?

    What do you mean fake? They're all verified listings.

    I wonder why the "C" in Locksmith is a special character... just trying to be clever, or does it cause G to not read it as 'locksmith'?...

    Hmm okay you're right. There's something fishy going on, he's probably pointing some pbn links to the listing to boost its ranking.

    I can't really say for sure because I'm not seeing any links in Majestic. So he could be hiding a couple of 301's, pbns

    There are courses out there on how to do this. I've not done it myself though.

    OP what are you asking?

    If you're asking how to create fake G Local listings it's easy as hell. You just create them lol. It's called "map spamming". This guy is great and I suggest you go far back through his twitter feed: https://twitter.com/maptivists

    You can create a fake G Local listing in the middle of a lake if you want. You can steal and verify unclaimed listings. I have a folder full of bookmarks on this. There's even a write up about this on Lindas forum: http://www.localsearchforum.com/goo...ings-getting-googles-attention-stop-spam.html

    Then there are many others I have bookmarked.

    All you do is set up the listing under a non existing address and call forward number. You don't even need to put a road in. Some indian guy will call you, and I'm not gonna tell you what to say. But I'll give you a hint. You act really stupid, you say something else, then he will do w/e the fuck you tell him to.

    I should add, this isn't gonna rank you in a wide proximity. There are guys who map spam 5 listings in the same 7 pack for the same site and they ALL rank prominently in a wide region. But that has nothing to do with the listing itself. It's way too many factors to explain in 1 post (and no, you do NOT backlink the listing itself).

    I'm looking for somebody to drive traffic to my locksmith company. I do NOT want to do the dirty work myself. Lol. Ideally somebody I could pay or partner with, who has done this and maybe some other kinds of seo and lead generation for locksmith services or related companies.

    interesting.....reminds me of a moon, maybe saying they are open when the moon is up in the sky above?

    Locksmiths, Carpet Cleaners, Movers, very tough niches dominated by the israelites, they are smarter than us

    This Guy GoogleKingSolutions is a SCAMMER - BE AWARE also using the name on skype: Google King SEO Solutions. wish i saw this thread before it was save me $250.
    any person telling you he /she has a method of by pass google verification ASK for proof of creating one listing before you fall into this SCAM. I had all the red flags but i wanted to believe that there is actually a way to do it. also going to list this guy in the Shit List. with any detail i know about him so maybe it will save money to other members.

    Funny this guy GoogleKingSolutions is trying to sell me 10 listings right now and wants half up front. We have been talking using Skype and he even made me one test listing within 5 minutes. I suspect all he did was change information on an old listing he had, otherwise why would some one tell me he will only sell 10 minimum and wants half up front. Smells like a scammer

    He ripped my off $500 last time I dealt with him. But originally for the first few months everything was legit and I made a good bit of money as I was able to get the listings instantly in the top spots. But when G plugged the exploit (he was able to just move the Pin to anywhere in the US) I think he got desperate for money and contacted me to say he found a new exploit. I paid him 1/2 for the exploit method and was going to pay him the other 1/2 once I confirmed it worked. I would love to find another exploit as G listings rock for leads.
