    Someone referenced that Phil had a good post on managing and correcting citations when there is no physical address. Can you provide the link to this post? Because many of the key citation sites require a physical address to claim and modify citations.

    Re: Troubleshooting Google Local Ranking Issues - InsideLocal Webinar

    Thanks Linda - Unfortunately, I was hoping for something more advanced. I'm concerned that uploading an address attached to a phone number (then suppressing it) will eventually get scraped by other data providers to update marketing lists and end up with a situation like this:

    123 Main St
    111-1111

    123 Main St
    444-4444

    123 Main St
    222-2222

    Which of course I do not want. But I guess it's better than nothing. This issue has been my biggest complaint for like the last 10 years... :-) Shocking there still isn't a viable solution.

    Re: Troubleshooting Google Local Ranking Issues - InsideLocal Webinar

    Sounds like maybe you were wanting info beyond the specific topic which was simply ranking troubleshooting? Maybe you were looking for more complicated multi-location or bulk upload issues info or something, which goes beyond the topic we were covering today.

    "I'm concerned that uploading an address attached to a phone number (then suppressing it)"

    Sorry, not sure I understand... Uploading where? Suppressing where? I think the post needs a little more context. Since it does not appear to relate directly to ranking, maybe this is more about data quality or 3rd party citations? Sorry, just can't quite grasp it.

    May be good to start a new thread with a little more background info in the citations forum if that's what you are referring to?
