    Dual claimed listing in old dashboard- Google says SOL

    Oh my- I had the exact same problem with a client who funny enough we took over from that same company (rhymes with zodle) (lol). They created a second listing and even though the client did not verify it. When Google was upgrading, the client got a message saying their listing was blocked...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    Just wanted to give an update- I logged in today and lo and behold the upgrade to the new dashboard is complete. Uh oh- The client did have a duplicate in their dashboard (shame shame) so I got on the phone with Google, deleted the dashboard and had to go into settings and hit manage this...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    It is crazy for sure. I checked again today- mind you the issue has been going on all weekend and he still has no g+ profile that he can post to. This is a client that is pretty active on g+ and likes to post stuff. I am going to call Google again tomorrow to see if I get the same or different...

    What kind of CRM/Task Management do you use?

    Hi Blake- We do use a CRM system- ZohoCRM and Zoho Campaigns for our autoresponder. Back in the day I used to do large scale ERP system implementations and for the price and flexibility for our needs, it works great for us. There are many choices out there and you are going to want to do some...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    I know Linda- did I mention that Google was the devil? I asked the rep repeatedly and she said it was due to a manual merge and the marking as spam was due to Google viewing it as a duplicate even though there are no duplicates. Apparently, the client created a places page, then went over to...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    Thanks again for providing feedback to this thread- I just got off the phone with Google and here is what they said: The places listing is live but what appeared to have happened is the client manually created a +page and because of the updates going on Google is marking it as a duplicate even...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    Oh my- I will contact them in the morning for sure. I am looking for any duplicates and have contacted the client to see if any previous SEO or anyone in his company created a profile that he didn't know about. I will keep Y'all posted as soon as call Google to see what they say- Thanks again-...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    Oh dear. All sorts of craziness. So it does seem to go back to duplicate listing warnings happening of late. I do suspect some previous SEO or someone has created a G+ page in their dashboard. I will try to dig more and get to the bottom of this and report the findings as soon as I hear. I will...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    Hi Linda sorry for the confusion. I tried to post this 2x before but kept getting posting errors. When I went to places.google.com I got the message that I showed an image for in my first post that started this thread. I then clicked onto the G+ link at the top right of the screen and it took...

    G+ Dashboard Account updates- Listing gone

    Hi I was wondering if anyone else is seeing this: My client reported that his G+ Listing disappeared. He said he got notice that it was a duplicate page. When I logged into his account, it simply says: "We are currently updating your account. It will be unavailable for a few hours. If you...

    How much does bad website design affect SEO?

    Thanks so much for the insights. I had a bad feeling that it will cause issues. The site is beautiful but not functional in terms of all content and formatting is hard coded in custom fields in the backend of WP. So you can't just go to pages or posts and create new from the editor box, you...

    How much does bad website design affect SEO?

    Hey- I have a new client and they had their site developed by someone other than my team. It is a WP site- completely custom. Upon looking at the back- end of the site, all of the content is pulled from custom fields they created. It's not using the functionality of the cms. It's almost like...
