    Google +1 Button Not Showing Up

    Hey Linda, I think your dead on with this assumption. I was able to get in touch with support and they basically said the same thing.

    Killer, High End, Out-of-the-Box Ideas for Local Business Listings

    This is very creative. I liked the ski shops the best! I also wonder if you could do this without a Google Trusted Photographer? If not, does anyone have a ballpark estimate of how much they would charge?

    Local Directories with Free Bulk Upload Feature

    Hey Jason, maybe it was who you worked with on this? I had a girl named Robin who assisted me with literally everything. This was around 2 months ago so they may be charging now but I am not sure. I just sent the spreadsheet over and my listings were on site by the next day. Funny how...

    Unfortunately, I have yet to find a way to get around this. Whenever this happens to me I have to contact the client and have them shut down the automated phone system so that we can complete the verification. However, I have contacted support before and explained this problem to them. I...

    Local SEO Warning: City in Title Tag - Former Google Spam Team Member Speaks Out

    I completely agree with Travis on this. Even if you do not get penalized for listing your city 3 times, it still will not look user friendly.
