    Postcards not arriving

    They are Gardeners or Home Cleaners. Yes, the postcards should be sent to their private houses. It's a franchise business, and all customers initially communicate via a central phone number or website.

    Dynamic Number Swapping (Call Tracking) Being Crawled By Google On Website

    Google does not like cloaking, but it is aware of many special cases where showing Google different content is fine. I believe call tracking is one of them. Google has got better at rendering pages, so maybe some of these call tracking companies are behind the times, and it is letting Google...
