    GMB Verification Issues

    Hi, https://plus.google.com/+CitywideLawGroupLosAngeles/posts I'm working with that listing. In early May, I made an address change which required re-verification via postcard. I got the postcard on May 17, entered the code, and something went wrong (not sure what), and the system kicked me...

    NAP Questions for Multi-Location Business

    I'm wondering why a subdomain would work best. My understanding is that subdomains require a whole new link profile, correct?
