    Geotagging Images via API

    I would say it's critical that the businesses aren't doing anything else that could be influencing their ranking. If you're optimizing the website or building links, for example, you can't properly isolate what was responsible for the increase. I'm actually in the process of testing this one...

    Reciprocal review network between small business owners

    I would suggest adding a column on the sheet that includes what action you want Google to take on it and why. If you're saying keywords aren't actually a part of the real business name, clarify where you confirmed the real business name.

    Google Guaranteed for GMB?

    @TomW have you seen anything new on it?

    Reciprocal review network between small business owners

    @DontBiteUrNails I would agree with Jason here that you will actually get farther reporting the fake listings associated with the fake reviews. In my experience, fake review networks take months for Google to remove after reporting there whereas fake listings take weeks.

    Users added to a GMB but never get an invite.... 👿

    Have the client login and visit this page and see if they see the pending invite: Account settings: Your browser is not supported.

    I checked with our team and we haven't seen any disappear.

    SAB closing PO Box

    Hey Josh, David switched from a PO box in this example, so PO Boxes are definitely a no. If you follow the instructions above, you can use his home address still but clear it so it doesn't show up anywhere.

    Do we care about Yahoo Local and MapQuest?

    I have always assumed Yext has an exclusive deal with Yahoo. If they didn't, I can't believe some of the other major citation/aggregator companies wouldn't have included them.

    Do we care about Yahoo Local and MapQuest?

    I can't recall the last time I saw any referral traffic from MapQuest but I'll ask the rest of my team.

    Do we care about Yahoo Local and MapQuest?

    100%. I recently did an analysis on a Yext account I signed up for. I signed up one of our clients in the legal/lawyer space and looked back to see the impact for the last 6 months. Yext likes to hide where the traffic is coming from (it all shows up as "Yext" in Google Analytics) but I...

    Are GMB posts not showing on SERP or Maps page?

    Posts only stay live for 7 days so I was just wondering about that. I would just try reposting them and if that still doesn't work, let me know.

    Question on duplicate content and search ranking for dentists

    My favorite type of link building would be PR. Getting clients mentioned in online articles when journalists are looking to quote experts on a given topic. Craig Mount is actually going to be talking about this strategy and how he utilizes it for his local SEO clients at our next LocalU event...

    Question on duplicate content and search ranking for dentists

    I haven't found content to be a massive differentiator for dentists. I totally agree with @1LocalBusiness and would focus more time on links. I don't think using similar content on different locations is a big deal at all if you're not targeting the same geographic areas. After all, there is...

    GMB on Mobile: "Directory" tab

    These are listings that are connected to the parent listing via the "located in" section or department listings section. GMB support should be able to hook up ones that are missing or remove ones if they're incorrect.

    Are GMB posts not showing on SERP or Maps page?

    So you're still seeing them in GMB but not on Google search? Were they posted in the last 7 days?

    Claiming SAB That Has No Visible Claim Option

    Yeah, that's typical with SABs, they don't always pull in that search. I think it's because it's using the Maps API (which doesn't include SABs).

    Claiming SAB That Has No Visible Claim Option

    If the listing is verified, you won't see the option anywhere on Google Maps (maps.google.com). If that's the case, you'll have to do the following: Go to the GMB Dashboard and create a new listing for your service area business. You will not get the existing listing in the drop-down to...

    Sharing reviews between very similar products?

    Are you talking about reviews on your website then?

    No Ability to Leave a Review from the KP, Only Maps

    Does it actually work when you leave a review on Google Maps? Does the review publish? I know in certain countries, reviews are shut off for anything in the education space.
