Anyone seeing significant changes in your clients G+ Local rankings today?
I wonder if this algo change (if that's what it is) has anything to do with the recent business name guideline update?
For example, maybe they turned the dial down to devalue the business description as a ranking signal and also turned the dial up on something else...
I've yet to see a listing (where I previously hadn't) that wasn't an EMD or have keywords added to the title.
Hey there- I have been lurking and soaking up Linda's training like a sponge. Thank you Linda for providing such an insightful forum and great training.
We have noticed some weird droppings.
We have a client in the plumbing/Air conditioning space and he dropped about 6-15 spots for plumber and plumbing and different combos of city+kw, kw+city just kw in his G+local listing. He also dropped for the word air conditioning and its variations, but climbed somewhat for the word air conditioner, air conditioner repair, etc.
I checked out his five of his competitors and ran some ranking reports on those and they all dropped for the keywords plumber and plumbing and their variations of it in their g+local listing (i.e., kw+ city, city+kw, etc.).
