Google “Greggs” and look at the image on the right of the results
‘Providing **** to scum for over 70 years’ apparently
We all might laugh at this but possible not the CEO of Greggs Roger Whiteside who when we finds out that some toe rag has cleverly uploaded an images tagged it’s connected with their Google Places listing.
How much third party information should Google use on our Places listings?
Well i think this might be one image to far. Google for a long time has allowed images and media such as video content and even reviews to be used from other reliable sources but when did http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/File:Greggs_logo.png become a source of trusted content??? hmmmm!
Other sources such as Picasa and Flickr have been used to support additional image information for years but this one, i think someone at Google HQ needs to take a look at this.
While this bug is out there i’m sure there will be plenty more of these going around hopefully it will all get resolved fairly quickly.
I’m going to tweet this @GreggstheBakers so hopefully they can start taking it down.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen these kinds of issues and i’m sure it won’t be the last but a word of warning to all business owners out there, always keep an eye on what is being said about your brand you never know what might happen one day.
