    New Free Tool from BrightLocal

    Personally I'd like to see an easy way to completely disable Q&A. (People keep using it to submit private information not realizing it's public) <eye roll>

    New Free Tool from BrightLocal

    Simple and fast. I'd been using another tool sort of similar to this but this seems better/faster.

    Technical: Search Console ignoring "Do not index" directives?

    Yeah, no issues there. Nope. Afraid not. Unclear TBH, but yes currently waiting for them to be dropped after requesting removals. Unsure how to do that where it'd apply only to Staging and not to Production. Ideas?

    Technical: Search Console ignoring "Do not index" directives?

    Background I have a server that runs many staging sites for many client websites as individual subdomains. eg: client1.stagingserver.com, client2.stagingserver.com, client3.stagingserver.com, etc. Each site contains both the production server's robots.txt file as well as a special...

    Language for titles being exploited?

    I’ve noticed a few spammers that seem to have their keyword stuffed titles in a non-English language field. It feels like this is some kind of exploit or something. It can’t be removed completely and substituted for a title in the English language field. Anyone know anything about this?

    Option to add "Services" gone from GMB

    I have still yet to see any Canadian location I manage get "Services" that don't show up as "Menu" to the visitor.

    How to become a Google Trusted Photographer

    I have not seen one and I've looked. I can tell you that Google got rid of their tool designed to aid in making 360 tours for some inexplicable reason. And that things are easier for Android users over iOS users as far as availability of tools and documentation.

    How to bust a "Marketing & SEO" spammer [Video]

    A local outfit has been posting several spam listings around town with business titles like "Amazon Marketing Experts", "Cityname SEO Experts" etc. I took the liberty of visiting their main office today on my lunch break. Looked like a co-working space but...

    Schema through Yoast

    He is an authority for sure but he speaks broadly and somewhat vaguely. This causes people to fill in the gaps for him or put words in his mouth for some reason. In the news the other day there was yet another article saying that Google has once again declared that SD should not be inserted via...

    Ugh. A while back Google's Structured Data Testing Tool stopped seeing Structured Data that was inserted via Google Tag Manager. This caused a minor little uproar on Twitter when Google's John Mueller tweeted a response of "I wouldn't rely on a tool like GTM to add Structured Data". One blog...
