Call Girls In The Form Of Electricians On Google Maps

Escort Service ProvidedNeed an electrician fast and you are based in Toronto? You might decide to search Google for [SOS Electrical In Toronto] but don't click on the results Google gives you, unless you are looking to spark other interests.

The results are polluted with Google Maps spam. Those spam results all lead to a site that is an adult escort service, or as they call them selves, a "call girlz escort agency."

Here is a screen shot, but it does not do justice to the number of spam results. The results go on and on:

Google Maps Spam/Porn

Google Maps is known for their spam issues. We don't cover all the spam or porn found in Google Maps but it happens often enough. We found similar issues a year ago and nude Google Place images in Google Maps. So it is common and happens often but I thought Google was getting better and preventing the Google Maps spam.

great catch Barry! haven't seen that one before, but I assume the use of the SOS in the title means that only the really really really lonely would make that click! :-) Jim

Interesting to see that all those spammy listings are Owner Verified & have an "Electrician" category in them..

hahaha good one Barry :) It's understandable though. Google can't possibly prevent all spam from hitting the net.

What funny results we got if we searched by this query. But i think that Google won't such type of risk. London escorts
