Yeah, that makes sense. I think it might be better to use just a shorter URL you buy. That's just me though.
Respectfully, I believe that it has little to no relevance. We will just have to agree to disagree on this one :)
There is a spectrum. On one end, there are the automated services and on the other are the manual services. Unfortunately, all have their issues. There is no perfect solution. The company that invents one will be highly successful.
Automated solutions cost too much, have accuracy issues...
We had an issue with that from a client but I can't remember what we did. We may have called into YP to get it removed.
This website? Goodzer - Exclusive Live Call Leads - it looks like a lead service. Is it a directory?
I'd outsource it to someone you can trust. I tried to do it myself for awhile but realized it just takes too much time away from other things I need to be doing. Plus, an actual professional could do a way better job than I ever could.
I posted this in another thread but local.com is a lost cause at this point. They have not replied to support in a long time and have been basically dead for 2-3 years now. I'd love to have one of their reps come here and prove us wrong. But I think they all know at this point. I imagine it's a...
Local.com is over in my opinion. They haven't provided reliable support for over a year. Probably more like 2-3 at this point.
If you try this again and it works, let me know. I'd love for this to be true. Thanks so much!
There isn't one unfortunately. Most tools are Yext's tool rebranded and the tool is bad. It's meant to create pain points, as you alluded to. I don't think any of them are interested in creating an accurate tool. Even if the tool is innacurate, that still works for them because whether the pain...
Hey Miriam, I'm not trying to be hard on you, but I don't really think you answered any of our questions. If you can't answer them because Moz has asked you not to, that's fine. I'd rather you just come out and say that.
Is your target market no longer Local SEO's and small businesses? If it's not, these changes make sense. If we're still the target market, I'm not sure how this is a better fit?
Moz Local has always been a shortcut for us to update data aggregators. That is now much more expensive...
Has something with the product changed?
I looked at the new features and the main thing I noticed is submission through data aggregators is now more expensive.
I think the directory submission is different now too but it's not robust and I wouldn't use Moz Local for that. In fact, it looks...
Coming out with an article on this soon! The short answer is yes, kind of :)
We'll be talking about how to make changes to your Yahoo listing without paying for it. For those that don't have a listing we'll also run over how to add one.
I think it has to be the hotel integrations Google does. They have so many more features available to them than any other industry it seems like. And it seems like the features go through a 3rd party vendor. No idea honestly.
Here's a tool we're making that will take your Yahoo Local listing and show you which providers are feeding the listing.
Would you guys mind going through it with your clients' listings and see if you find any...
I think it's pretty cool user experience. It does feel really messy though. But that may only be to us SEO's who know what we are looking at.
I also wonder if the merging of the content happens at different intervals. Some after the 1st organic listing, some after the 2nd, etc. If so, then it...
Here you go:
Almost all directories have workarounds for automated systems. They require hard works sometimes and can be far from elegant, but typically there is a workaround. As a matter of fact, the only ones I know of that we can't work around currently are hubbiz, yellowise, and ibegin...
Typically I would say the service area page you've created. But that's if you're going to be targeting high competition areas and more than just 2 of them.
If you're only going to be targeting these 2 areas the homepage should be fine. Just make sure you optimize the homepage for the 2nd area...
If you do decide to stick with it, I'd go through all of your citations and update the names. While Google could match it partially it's likely they have more trust if it's a full match. And updating them shouldn't be too difficult.
What will happen is the people who bought info from Acxiom will now buy from InfoUSA, Localeze, or Factual instead. It's good news for us as there's less to work with now.
The only bad news is that the smaller sites that were using Acxiom at one point probably won't find a new provider and the...
