    I just used the Suggest an edit feature to add the link to see if that will help.

    Which Hosting Company do you guys recommend please?

    I have been testing this company and so far am very happy with the speed. https://shockhosting.net/portal/aff.php?aff=491 Much better than Godaddy for my sites. For higher needs I recommend WP Engine.

    How has your experience been so far with Google's Redressal Complaint Form?

    GMBs have the same NAP

    If you have two different businesses I would expect two different names and two different phone numbers. That would mean different NAPs, that only share a common address. If not, you are doing it wrong.

    GMBs have the same NAP

    Don't. Why would it make sense to have 2 listings for the same business?

    How has your experience been so far with Google's Redressal Complaint Form?

    I checked again today and the listing is back, spammy fake business name and all... Brother Garage Doors LLC - Garage Door Springs Repair | Replacement Avondale AZ Is there any reason to spend time reporting these to Google?

    How has your experience been so far with Google's Redressal Complaint Form?

    I checked the search results today to see if this has changed and the whole listing is gone. Don't know why, I don't think this is a fake business listing. It seems like it should have simply resulted in the name being corrected. Strange.

    "Suggest an Edit" Auto-Denying on Google Maps

    Google's lack of response to valid reports destroys motivations to help improve their product.

    Popular SEO Beliefs That Make No Sense At All

    I agree, Google is first and foremost an advertising company. Everything they do is to make their advertising products more valuable. I admire the incredible advertising resources they created and don't know of a better advertising product that has ever been invented. Google also is simply a...

    Competitor spamming GMB ( I think)

    What I find strange is how Google really doesn't care about spam that is very obviously blatant. I have recently suggested edits for fake business names like, ABC Company LLC - Reputable Garage Door Springs Repair | Replacement Anytown USA only to have those edits rejected. If they won't make...

    I swear, GMB phone reps are gaming their automated feedback system

    I just got off of a call with Google Ads support. The problem had to do with billing and my client needs to add a new card before they will restart the ads, even though they have a 0 balance. At the end the representative asked me to hold for a short survey and then I was disconnected. This...

    I swear, GMB phone reps are gaming their automated feedback system

    They most definitely game their reviews. Whenever I call, they push me for a review if it was easily solved, but if it is a difficult case they routinely disconnect me before I would get to the review. The support was so much better back when they used that group out of Tempe, AZ.

    Google MY Business and Google Maps Keeps doing the opposite of what I ask!

    Looks like you set Divorce Service as your primary category. Did you also add Mediation Service as a category?

    Google MY Business and Google Maps Keeps doing the opposite of what I ask!

    At this point since the listing is live and showing up, driving rankings is really the issue. You mentioned that you did citation building, so that is hopefully good. As you build your relevance, your reach should grow as well. Was your website built by someone that understand local seo?
