    During our transition from Suzuki to Subaru of Wichita, I've discovered an oddity I wanted to share with the community. It's a Google+ page called "Local photos" and bears the Google Local icon, but it doesn't seem legit. Check it out here. Among the literally THOUSANDS of picture albums filled with other people's pictures, it has a bunch of our Suzuki pictures that I can't get removed from our Google+Local listing.

    You can't get to the pictures from the profile page (linked above), so here's the link to them.

    I've flagged our pictures in the hope that they'll be removed, but to no avail. What's going on here?

    And this coming from Google surprises you because...

    That is a unique find Aaron. Hopefully flagging the photos will get the job done.

    Keep us updated.

    Ha! Actually, during this big transition, Google has pleasantly surprised me more than once. I'm saving those findings for my next article, however. ;)
