    Opening Soon - Create or Wait?

    So, we have a client who uses Yext to maintain/update their location information (they have 19 locations across the state). They are planning to open a new location in mid-November. In the past, I know Google's stance has been to wait until the location is open for business before creating a...

    GMB Not Adding All Listings to Dashboard

    We recently acquired a new client with nearly 40 locations across North Carolina. Our agency account was invited as a manager to each location, which I went in and accepted.

    Embedding Google Maps Without the API

    I apologize in advance if this was posted somewhere else but I didn't see it. Is the Google Maps API required for embedding a Google Map onto a webpage? Or can you still embed using the "old" free method?

    Remove Listing from BingPlaces Dashboard

    Is there a way to remove a listing from your BingPlaces dashboard without deleting the business from BingPlaces? We have a listing in our dashboard for a business who we are no longer working with. I'd like to "unclaim" that listing, I guess is the best way to put it. Any ideas? TIA

    Google Knowledge Graph "What People Search For"

    I've got a question about the Google Knowledge Graph. Has Google ever said where they get the info to display other businesses at the bottom under "What People Search For"? I've done some looking but haven't found a whole lot. I was hoping someone here might know something.

    Business with Unmanned Locations

    We have a client who operates 5 car washes in the area. They also have an administrative office in town. I'm pretty certain that according to Google's guidelines, we're not going to be able to get the 5 locations verified in GMB. Since MapMaker is now closed and that's no longer an option...

    Google Not Showing Our Address in Knowledge Graph

    A few months ago while doing an experiment on voice command driving directions, we discovered that Google stopped showing our address in the Knowledge Graph. Google is now only showing our city and state. We have spoken to Google Local reps on the phone multiple times and they told us that...

    Abnormal Spikes in Views on GMB Profiles

    In looking through the Google MyBusiness Insights for some of my clients, I'm noticing some very high spikes in Profile Views. They all seem to be from November 11 and 12. Has anyone here seen that as well?

    Issues With Cell Phone as Main Business Number

    Is anyone noticing issues in getting citations from Moz onto sites such as YP and Manta, for example, with a business that uses a cell phone number as their primary business number? I'm wondering if the business is somehow being punished for having a cell phone as the main number. Thoughts?
