Here is the tweet
Garage Door Spam Gone Wild – hearing today that 1000’s of new listings are popping up countrywide with the fake http://business.site GMB listings in a few days. @GoogleMyBiz @dannysullivan (How are you doing bud, been a while) – this should be an easy pattern to knock out.
Here Danny Sullivan responded with,
“Yes, we’re looking into reports.”
Yes, we’re looking into reports.

In response to Danny Sullivan tweet, another local SEO wrote:
“This is getting a bit out of control. The Google ‘business’ sites being so easy to spin up (and constantly update, connected to Posts) is great but also… lends additional ‘credibility’ to spammers and lead gen sites.”
