Content guidelines violation
1
Hello!

I would like to alert you about suspicious activity that I've come across.

On this website - https://iholiday.sk/zajazd/hilton-dubai-jumeirah-resort the vacation packages are marked as events. Undoubtedly, this is against the content guidelines for Events and I quote:
''Don't promote non-event products or services such as "Trip package: San Diego/LA, 7 nights" as events.'' What is worrying is that these bookings appear on search in a Knowledge Panel card, a screenshot below:

Moreover, it appears that marking trips and booking packages as events is actually a common practice for the website in question - https://iholiday.sk/zajazd/.

Since this is a deliberate violation with the intention of promoting booking services, I am hoping that the issue will be addressed accordingly. 

I appreciate your attention to this matter.
Regards,
Veliko

"we've been trying to resolve this by using the feedback option for two months now.  "

Keep in mind that in many cases, it is not as quickly as you would like, it takes time, sometimes, more than...

Hi Andrés,

Thank you so much for looking into this!

I've been using the Feedback option that is located just under the Event KG, assuming that this is the most direct way of reporting the issue. I will definitely utilize the feedback at the bottom of the search page as well. I appreciate the suggestion.

To answer your second question, yes, my arguments have been the same since we came across the content guidelines for events, which was several weeks ago.

Any other ways of escalating this to the concerned team at Google would be highly appreciated.

Cheers,
Veliko
