    I was browsing today and searched for a 5 start resort that i know here in my city, they also sell apartaments on their complex, they have like 8 buildings , convetion center , a clarion hotel inside their compex and stuff ( I'm not sure what it's called but they have many stuff and call it resort).
    I was surprised to see this on google local listing on the right of serps :

    So ... That what happens when you dont do rep management or set up a local page and don't care. I'm not sure how this guy manage to upload this picture and do this trolling , but that was hilarious .

    I must be missing something here. Who did what now? I don't particularly see anything wrong here.

    So you mean you find it funny when there's that image instead of a pretty little pool and hot bikini chicks like a five star resort should have? I think I'm missing the point as to why it's funny.

    The thing is : a troll manage to upload a picture of a falling in pieces home as it was the resort . Whoever searches for the resort name it shows that house pic in first place. Which impression it gives : I'm not sure how he did it. It's a bit hard to explain maybe that's why you guys aren't getting it . Anyway , i dont think a 5 star resort would like a rundown place showing when some one searches on google for it

    Just offer them online reputation service for a fee. However, they may think you planted that picture to get the job lol.

    Okay, I see your point now. That went way over my head I guess.

    Whether it was done maliciously or not, you want to lock that shit down. But even when claimed, people can upload photos if they want, and I can't recall if you can take other people's uploads down. I think someone I know had a problem with this and they had to call Google.

    I guess the real thing to do here is just to be aware.

    5 star resorts: now with lopsided trees.

    To be honest with you, I was expecting something worse than that; something like a Photoshopped Silverback gorilla eating its own faeces in the hotel's lobby.
