    Claiming Public Spaces & Places

    Hi guys, A town hall has asked me to investigate claiming local spaces which they manage, such as parks, sports centres, churches, etc. Having spoken to GMB support they tell me it's not possible to claim parks, as there's nowhere to receive the verification mail. I just wanted to cross...

    Changing GMB website from Facebook page to new website

    Colan, does this mean I can report the competition for doing this? I'd say at least 40% of the competition use FB pages as website in our local area.

    Changing GMB website from Facebook page to new website

    Thanks for your feedback guys, I appreciate it. I get that it might go against guidelines which I'm not keen to do, however I'll have to bend the rules and leave it a while, as I can't justify making a change which may result in significantly lower local traffic, albeit for a short(ish) period...

    Changing GMB website from Facebook page to new website

    Hmm, and does anybody think that an appropriate way to judge which has the higher authority, would be seeing which appears highest organically for branded searches?

    Changing GMB website from Facebook page to new website

    Hi all! I've recently started working with a local gastropub in Spain. They've had their Facebook page linked to from GMB as their website for several years, and the FB has several links and citations built around it. They get lots of activity via GMB, with 500 +/- actions per month. They've...

    Sudden loss of ranking and deindexing of homepage

    Well, after updating the special opening hours in the GMB, within half an hour the homepage was indexed and local falcon rankings were similar to those on 01/04. I can't help get the feeling that it's all coincidental rather than causal though as I don't really believe the special hours thing...

    GMB "Advanced Information" Labels?

    FYI, I was talking to GMB support the other day and the technician seemed very clear that labelling according to the business key terms would provide ranking benefit. I said to him that I just couldn't see that being the case, but he insisted. I think it's a case of him not having a clue, but...

    Website Design Companies

    Hi Josh, I do Wordpress website development following best practices. Since January this year I've been trying to learn more about local SEO to implement at a design level so would love the opportunity to work alongside people here to benefit from their experience/indications. You can see here...

    Verified and optimised GMB listing doesn't show up on maps when viewing the street (unlike every other local business which does).

    Lol. It's actually interesting to know people see a 'trial period' for businesses at the beginning, I wasn't aware of this or it did seem like a possibility, but I hadn't considered that it might last for 9 months or more. Although hard to know I'd suspect we're still in this, as on organic we...

    Hi Josh, Both the listing and the website have been up since February this year, so around 9 months.

    Thanks Stefan, makes sense :). Just hard to explain to a client why every other business appears but his. Jack

    Verified and optimised GMB listing doesn't show up on maps when viewing the street (unlike every other local business which does).

    Hi! I was wondering if someone might give me some pointers/things to check to make my business show up on Maps. The business is Clínica Silos Bormujos, a dental clinic on "Avenida del Aljarafe", a road in the village of Bormujos. If you search the business by name (first blue link) it appears...

    GMB Categories: Dentist + Dental Clinic

    For what it's worth, I went with Dentist as primary originally because my Google Ads campaigns showed significantly more searches related to "Dentist" than "Dental Clinic" (almost double), with higher CTRs and conversions too.
