    Yelp's "Best 10" lists?

    Found this post while researching and wondering if anyone else has thoughts here? The specific query I'm looking at is "custom jewelry denver". One of the listings has 1 review, one has 3 reviews and one isn't in Denver (it's in a suburb, Arvada). Here's the page ranking #1 organically: Top 10...

    Two Phone Numbers for Business

    Curious what to do with a business that has two phone numbers for two very different purposes. There are two separate phone numbers, one for the one brick and mortar showroom and one for corporate/eCommerce site where they want all of the people purchasing/browsing online to call. What is best...

    What is the latest with using a PO Box and/or an address @ somewhere like a UPS store?

    @BenFisher @Tim Colling @whitespark (and all) -- one follow up question here -- Darren you mentioned how to build citations with a hidden address, but what should you do with existing citations pointing to the old address? Should you try to delete them? Leave them (since the phone number is the...

    What is the latest with using a PO Box and/or an address @ somewhere like a UPS store?

    Hi, I have a client that is selling the building to their physical location and moving their business, they are going to run it out of their house. They do not want to use their home address as their business address. I know PO Boxes and addresses at UPS stores used to "work" then they didn't...

    Multi-Location Keyword Targeting - Looking for Thoughts / Advice

    Thanks Joy! Yes, all the citation building will be pointing to the location pages. The zip codes helping makes sense. When you say "optimize for "near me" queries" -- this is something newer to me. Is there a good thread or post anyone could point me toward that would help me better understand...

    Multi-Location Keyword Targeting - Looking for Thoughts / Advice

    Hi, I am just getting my hands dirty with a new project and have not worked on a lot of local SEO projects in the past few years. The client is a national brand that ranks well for synonymous keywords like "HR Outsourcing" and "PEO Services" which have local 3-packs even without City modifiers...

    Local 3 Pack listing in Google SERPS

    Hi, I have a client who is ranking #4 (in 'more places') on a Local 3 Pack listing on Google for a search query around 'personal injury.' The top 3 attorneys are all listed as 'personal injury attorneys' and my client is showing as 'General Practice'. All of these lawyers, including my client...

    Strange G+/Local/MapMaker Issue

    Thanks Joy, we spoke with them a couple days ago and are waiting to hear back - it is interesting, though. Although all listings we found in Maps and MapMaker had our updated address, the rep said one of the listings had our OLD address in the backend even though it was showing our new address...

    Strange G+/Local/MapMaker Issue

    Thanks a bunch guys. We logged into GMB as the owner and added a location... for both locations it said "this location is already verified in your account"... even though you can only see one location. So we updated both listings to be exactly the same in Maps and MapMaker, and are in the...

    Strange G+/Local/MapMaker Issue

    Hi, We have a strange issue going on with our Google Maps listings. I was not sure which forum to post to, apologies if it's misplaced. Will try to explain as best I can. We have a Google+ Page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/109323918893578995526/+Goinflow/posts It is 'connected' with our...

    Google+ Won't Change Name to Correct Spelling

    Currently the business name on our Google+ page has a letter that should be capitalized that is not. We have tried to make the change, but it won't go through. We also would like to add another line to our address to include our floor number, but that change won't go through either. What are...

    How to find bad links affecting your local ranking

    I would run a link DTOX report, which is one of the tools available on LinkResearchTools.com - it's pretty good at categorizing links & assigning them a 'risk level'. Of course, there is some manual review involved but this is the best tool I've found. They have their own database that pulls...
