    "Suggest an edit" = "Apple My Business"?!

    Def very old :) You can do this via Apple Maps on Mac's also.

    Backlinking to GMB Listing

    Okay, so I'm jumping in late to this. But I just want to express my curmudgeonly skepticism around this. A few things: 1) I have tried this pretty regularly for years (though not in the last 18 months) and don't understand what would have changed for this to work. Without that explanation, it's...

    Search Console - Mobile Avg. Position Change for GMB tagged URL - June 1

    No, I'm skeptical that they would even know ;) But I can ask a TC on that product and see what shakes loose!

    Search Console - Mobile Avg. Position Change for GMB tagged URL - June 1

    Confirmed this trend across thousands of locations (and with in-house SEOs). The one thing that is not consistent is not everyone saw the change at the same time. For example a top 10 retailer has been like this for a while.

    Search Console - Mobile Avg. Position Change for GMB tagged URL - June 1

    The reporting of the tagged GMB URLs in GSC is broken. Position on mobile and desktop is no longer usable, and you need to segment them out of your GSC reporting so they don't ruin position reports. Talked about this during my LocalU Advanced preso (that Joy missed) :p

    How Is DogVacay.com Doing this?

    Can you unpack this for me? The DogVacay homepage still resolves (Dog Boarding with Trusted, Local Pet Sitters | DogVacay) but the internal pages have been redirected to Rover. Nothing is a doorway page as they have redirected them. They have told Google they have moved, It's Google that is not...

    Google Algorithim Update SEPT 2019

    Ha, Barry! You and I both know that they likely had tests of whatever the broad core update was in the wild before they rolled it out! Though my guess would be something tanked on your server ;)

    How Is DogVacay.com Doing this?

    Rover bought DogVacay a while ago and likely redirected the website. Google is really bad at updating redirected web URLs in their index that have a lot of internal and external links pointed at them. So likely what is happening is just an issue with Google's system that Rover appears to be...

    Yext Class Action Suit?

    I suggest starting with everyone involved in Local.com 15+ years ago

    Changed to SAB and Traffic Dropped Big Time

    So not to be contrarian, or cross The Hawk, but I more or less always recommend that clients use physical addresses instead of SAB for listings. I have done a bunch of pieces of research on this over the years, and it has always been a kiss of death to be a SAB. Industries we have tested this on...

    Aggregators - are they important?

    I wish someone would aggressively test the values of citations at scale again. Our last big test was a few years ago, and I'm curious if the value of citations/aggregators is continuing to decrease.

    Do You File a Disavow for a Hacked Site?

    Because trusting Google to get it right is a terrible idea, imho.

    Do You File a Disavow for a Hacked Site?

    So like I told Joy, we generally will disavow the links to dead pages of a site that was hacked. That being said: 1) Generally double bag things 2) I like to be explicit and declarative when we run away from things. 3) It's overkill
