    Flagged listings removed but then reappear

    I understand it is technically violating the guidelines so I have no real grounds to stand on. It just seems kind of dickish to me since it's not keyword-stuffing and has even been reported on here to have 0 effect, but hey, it's a dog eat dog world.

    Spam at top of SERPs

    What kind of info can visitors submit on the website? I don't think it is against the rules to run a lead-gen website, or is it?

    Service Area Listings

    I asked about this on this forum not too long ago and the unfortunate answer is that it is damn near impossible that a SAB will rank in other cities/areas other than the one you are located in.

    Hello y'all A couple of months ago I was editing a listing for a client, it was already claimed and everything but lacked a lot of information so I simply did a complete makeover on it, not thinking too much about it.

    Google Short Link Not Working Properly

    Sorry maybe I misunderstood you seemed a little down on website reviews. If you want to have review stars show up in your SERPs related to a product or service you need to have those reviews gathered from your website and not from another party like facebook reviews or google reviews I guess...

    On the other hand the reviews gathered on the website can be turned into review stars in the SERPs!

    Keyword Stuffing in Business Names Question
