Google Maps Clamps Down On Fake Listings

It has reduced fake listings by 70%

Google has revealed that it has been working hard to get rid of fraudulent listings on its Google Maps service. Google Maps allows businesses to list their location on its online map service, an invaluable tool for businesses who rely on people visiting their physical premises. Google says that it has reduced fake listings by 70% compared to 2015, when the service saw a peak in fake listings. Now, less than 0.5% of all Google Maps listings are thought to be fake. It says that it has managed to crack down on fake listings by improving its verification processes, saying that 85% of bogus listings are now identified before they even show on Google Maps. Many tech companies are currently turning their attention to stamping out fake news and fraudulent information, after it was suggested that fake news articles may have influenced voting in the 2016 US Presidential election.
