I have worked on these 2 GMBs so far, and when I create citations for them it seems nothing happens.

The website is ranking #1 for the term, I just don't get how its buried down inside the maps

I NEVER have this problem when it comes to ranking a Location base business

Look at this performance, they both ordered a set of backlinks/citations, it's not like I have spent countless hours on one

What does this imply... Maybe I should stay away from SAB since they're impossible to rank
It got worse in 2022. something changed in the way Google weighed SABs. They were already (IMO understandably) harder to rank in some verticals (e.g. Massage therapists), but suddenly, we were seeing erratic rankings were SABs were just... never showing even though on every possible metrics they had better SEO going on than the competition.

It's maddening because it's basically impossible to predict in advance whether a SAB will be punished. As if the SAB address bug wasn't bad enough already!
