I found you on Places for the phrase "Boat Rental Service key west". You were down on page 11.i received the google postcard,my address is 951 caroline st. google support thanked us for clarifying and reinstated our listing.it was live for 1 day
i believe that is a dupe,our listing we manage had over 20 reviews and ranked highly.google has told us we dont need to do anything.the original listing went live again on nov 7 and the next day it was gone
YAY Jason's listing is back up!
I'm surprised after all the energy we put into trying to get exposure for his problem here to help try to force a solution and with all the folks that tried to help him in the Google forum, that he didn't let us know his listing issue was resolved. I'm thinking he possibly doesn't know yet??? But I would think with all the back and forth most folks were doing with Google support, they would have let them know the listing was back.
Re #1 I wanted to ask you.... DID YOU set up and merge the Google+ Business page? Because it's a combo/merged page now. Was it like that before or is that how Google set it up for you???
#2 I didn't do any analysis of your site, BUT when I searched San Francisco Florist, you rank #2 organic which is pretty good. AND you rank above the local blended listings which may even get you better click through because you have the big keyword rich paragraph instead of the little stripped down local listing.
Possibly your site could be improved but: A) I think the main issue is G+L related. B) Yes Panda/Penquin affect local listings too, but you didn't get dinged or you would not be ranking #2 organic. C) Catalyst no longer does optimization for businesses. Only training for SEOs and agencies. But I do still do consulting to help businesses that need troubleshooting or ranking tips. I just no longer do the hands on. But if you need actual hand's on help I could refer you to one of my consultants.
SO SUPPORT NEVER EMAILED YOU TO LET YOU KNOW? I wonder when the listing came back???
RERs were always told that SABs will never show up in GMM if the address is hidden. Seems like that horse ran out of the stable...
