    GMB Name + City/Area Served

    Client Closed Business, now re-opening with same name

    We have a client that is re-starting their business. They ran from 2010-1017 and built up 58 reviews in Google Maps. In 2017, they were moving out of country and so they closed the company (hair stylist). In September 2019, they have moved back to the US and restarted their business. Can they...

    Google showing only domain name in results (when not logged in)

    I was reviewing some terms earlier today (web design companies in omaha) and did a test while not logged in and notice that the URL information wasn't showing in the results. I can't recall if this was talked about before, but figured I'd post it here. Not sure if this is a test, or if this is...

    Report Business "Doesn't Exist" - does it work?

    Hey Guys, In the past I would report businesses not at an address, or what has now been moved to just "Doesn't Exist" and I never seemed to have a problem with it. These days, every "Doesn't Exist" map edit that I've submited in the past week has been rejected. 14 suggestions (combined...

    UpCity - What's your thoughts?

    Hi guys, I found a few threads for a number of years ago, but nothing since 2016 or so. Checking to see if anyone on here is using UpCity as a way to bring in new leads, boost their rankings, etc etc. If so, have you had good/bad success overall?

    Google Analytics Snapshot freaking out clients :)

    While not specifically local related, it's definitely freaking out a couple of our local seo clients. We received 3 emails and 1 call from clients freaking out that they received the Monthly Google Analytics snapshot for July and it said their average users spent 1, 2 or 3 seconds on the site...

    GMB Sample/Demo Profile

    I'm just checking to see if Google has a DEMO or SAMPLE profile listing that we can share with users or use in a video/screenshot explaining a section.

    GMB location, no verify, no access

    Hi guys, Checking to see if anyone has a better method on getting a business back on the GMB maps. The client purchased the business about 2 months ago. We've already gone through the "request access" and waited now 10 days, but there's been no email from Google saying Denied, and no option to...

    Bad Reviews, thinking of closing GMB profile

    Hi guys, I had a phonecall yesterday from a potential client from another state that read an article I wrote on our site about the removal of the Google Anonymous Reviews. During our call, they shared they lost over 180 reviews which took them from a 4.6 star rating to a 1.x :( Really feel...

    GMB Comparison Tool (& Facebook too) - Does it exist any more?

    Hi folks, Hunting for some software that can get an a broad overview on competition for a phrase/company. Similar to what Places Scout used to have as their standalone software. I chatted with them today, and they're online monthly but for what I need, I'll only utilize 1/10th of their...

    "Posts" link from GMB - 404 Error

    Not sure how long it's been, but after accessing Google My Business, if I click on the "posts" link on the left column, it leads to a 404 Error page. I can still access it from the Google Search and editing from there, but the Posts link seems broken at the moment, so I can't view the VIEWS...

    Hey Guys, I have a buddy (and non-client) who owned a carpet cleaning business for a number of years. They've now sold it as of last year.

    Facebook Reviews - How To See Them

    Hi folks, Seeing is someone is able to assit with being able to export Facebook Reviews. From inside a business page, we can see the 5 latest reviews, or reviews by star ratings, but there's no way to see more than that (that I can find). Does anyone have a way to export reviews from Facebook...

    Dex Media, Dex Knows, Dex Digital - website scraping/duplication?

    Hello Everyone, Usually, I'm perfectly fine with Dex, and encourage our clients to get a listing. Normally not a problem (even though Dex changes the phone number so they can do their own call tracking etc some times). Today, I had a phone call from a client saying that their website was being...

    I don't know if this is the right category for the forum, so please move as needed. It's not directly affecting LOCAL search, but rather ALL search (for me). Doing searches this morning, I'm getting a popup every other search asking me how my search experience is going. I don't recall getting...
