    WEBINAR VIDEO RECORDING




    WEBINAR Q & A LOG

    Here is the link to the EXTENSIVE Ranking Factors Q&A chat log which is way too long to post in this thread. In fact there were so many great questions and the post is so long, it kept making the forum time-out.

    PLEASE ASK Qs WE COULD NOT GET TO BELOW! Colan and I were typing as fast as we could but there were so many Qs we could not get to.

    Question Re: Local Search Ranking Factors Webinar w/ David Mihm, Andrew Shotland, Matthew Hunt

    With the "more reviews" button on the knowledge graph, if the more reviews connect to the wrong business (with a similar name), how can you change this? For example, a franchise with different locations. Example: Sign-A-Rama is my client. They are located in Libertyville, IL. Their reviews on the knowledge graph link to Sign-A-Rama Grayslake even though they have a different name, address, and phone number.

    Re: Local Search Ranking Factors Webinar w/ David Mihm, Andrew Shotland, Matthew Hunt

    Thanks for posting here and I'm sorry I did not have time to explain during webinar.
    Would have taken too long.

    But in general the knowledge graph problems are tricky. They fall into a neverland somewhere between GMB and organic. The search brings up the organic result and then it tries to find the correct GMB data.

    But the matching algo that pulls all the data from GMB and matches it up with the organic result I believe is more on the organic side of the house and sometimes it gets mixed up. And that matching algo is a black box. No one quite understands how it works.

    I believe all you can do is try your best to be sure the data is clean and correct. I don't know of any way to even change or report a problem with the knowledge panel.
