    Multiple reviews from customers are not displaying on client's GMB profile. Nothing for 9 months.

    Thank you, interested to hear what he finds out about this. The client is very confused and unsure if they should continue to ask for reviews on Google.

    Questionable Advice on recent Search Engine Land article

    Appreciate all the feedback and discussion, late to the conversation too, but it is still an important one to have. As the author of the SEL article, I was actually hoping for feedback on the article before it published. It was an early first draft so I was surprised to find it published on...

    Do Exact Match Domains Still Work?

    I would say that it depends on the industry and customer audience. If you're a tech company startup, using one of the new GTLD domain names has many benefits. It is affordable, could allow you to mix an EMD with a branded domain and it is trusted by a young internet savvy audience. However, if...

    Needing help on Hearst media sites. At least that is who I've been told manages local newspaper directory data. I've had a hard time understanding where they get their data, many claim Axiom, although I've had plenty of clients with incorrect data or missing data on these newspaper directories...

    Duplicate in Name of Business with Attorneys and Doctors

    Just an update on this post, the funny thing is Google My Business Guidelines still allow for this to happen. Even though in my mind, it is bad practice. Waiting for the day when they are updated. I now have an attorney client that has a firm listing that ranks well and a personal attorney...

    Facebook Issues - Business Page is Invisible in Google

    Thanks Linda. Well if the business facebook page is invisible, that has to be affecting local rankings is my thinking. If Facebook had a support team, that might solve it.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Moz Local seems to have difficulty pulling in many of my client Facebook pages, essentially telling me they don't have one... However, with one of my clients, I'm desperately needing help. If you Google "Facebook (business name)" I cannot find the facebook...

    How to properly use Google Places descriptors.

    @Phil. I would respectively disagree on point three. I have been doing this for the last month and have seen great success. Edits have been published in most times, within 24 hours. See below for an example: Your edit to the listing for Flashback Data - Dallas has been published. You can view...

    How To Update Your Local Listing Data on the 4 Main Data Aggregators - Mockingbird

    I've used Moz local many times since its inception, but I did speak incorrectly about a few things. I just completed two campaigns for clients and it has gotten much faster so I would agree with Colan. As long as you are a subscriber (paying $84 a year), you can update your business...

    How to properly use Google Places descriptors.

    Phil, with Google guideline changes to not allow descriptors in a business name, and your recent coverage on this change, this post is now outdated. Here are my insights, I welcome feedback... 1. Add descriptors to a business name, but only if a client is willing to legally change their name...

    How To Update Your Local Listing Data on the 4 Main Data Aggregators - Mockingbird

    One thing with Moz Local Joshua, is you can't edit the listing in the future. Claiming these sources manually gives you and the client easy logins to update at any time. If you claim a listing like Neustar Localeze with Moz Local, you can't login to the Localeze or make an update - like if the...
