    Listing Takes You To Maps, Do I Need to Create a Business Page Now?

    Have a new client that is now on the new dashboard but when I go in there and look to view his listing, it goes to Maps. I'm assuming I have to create a business+ page for him in order to have a local+ page (if that's what it's still called, thought I read it may change yet again) Are...

    Using a Toll Free # as Main #, Any chance to Rank?

    Thanks Linda, thats what i thought. He has a Regus office and i dont believe he ever meets anyone there, usually goes to clients but I will double check. Lets say he does meet a few clients every now and then at his office, but its not staffed during the day, should we still delete?

    When Client Does Not Have Login for Google Local Places

    we have a new client who had a similar issue to previous client. They have a partially filled out and claimed places listing but have no clue on the login info. Is it best to go in and create a new one and then merge the 2? Thanks chris

    Looking for Article on length of time to rank

    Yep, thats the one. And many factors are contributing to the delays in ranking and heaven forbid if its a new site or you dont have access to do on page.

    Keyword or City First in Local SEO

    Ive started to do some PPC for a few clients and can confirm the kw without the city modifier is used a whole lot more than I would have thought. A few years ago, im guessing Google might not have been as efficient as determining what is a local search or not and so people would search more...
