    I'm at whit's end. I do the internet marketing for a pretty large bail bonds company. Everything is centralized around local search and google places. I have authentic and verified and actual offices that I have listed in Google Places.

    Problem: There are 3 bail bonds companies that have completely spammed the Google Places and every single address is fake, reviews are fake, their websites are 1000's of pages and much of it is duplicate content. I've filed reports to google web spam, google places, and everything I do, nothing happens. Not that it matters that these companies are also doing other illegal things to get bail bonds business,but just the fact that my hard work on SEO and local SEO can't compete with the $1000's that they are spending with an SEO company who also doesn't care about black hat SEO and black hat local SEO.

    What can I do? Please help. What can I do to get Google to see the facade they are producing?

    If google does not remove those pages, it would be difficult for you to beat them.

    Step up your game. Either your in it to win it, or you're not. Once you make that decision, don't lose.

    Make sure Google places is properly optimized with many keywords.

    Click on each Places page that you believe is breaking the Google Places TOS. Then under the businesses information you will see this

    • Search nearby Save to map moreâ–¼
    Click on the downward point arrow next to the word more. Then click on the second option, Report a problem.

    Just make sure that your listing is as white hat as you say before you take this action.
