    Ok. Followed up on this again today (its Monday for me) Searched: "We are the area's only authentic Tuscan eatery" Notice on your picture that /video was at the end of the link for the old: Maybe I have that attached to a Youtube video somewhere? Now that the old version is out of...

    Broadly to the traffic, yes. Specifically, views that I infer lead to the traffic, yes. Completely agree with the "duh" part. I was operating under the constant that we all know, more eyeballs will increase traffic, if even slightly. The basic answer, that we begin with was "Italian Restaurant...

    Dave, I cannot speak to the suppositions part. For the graphs on the 20th viewership jumps and it correlates to the carousel posting, it also falls when the carousel drops - which I think I cut off by accident.

    Well, after 4 days all went back to the way it was prior to any changes. There must still be some penalty of some kind somewhere!? Based on that, I have the term being pulled daily to micro track the changes. I have some charts below. Views were significantly higher, not surprisingly...

    LOL. Thanks! No we were not in the pack or wheel. So, not possible for me to identify any changes.

    How much google search traffic do you get? You can speak in ranges over time without giving specifics. 3k in the past 30 days Did it increase or decrease after the carousel went up? With the fix are you seeing anything different in google searches. As I noted yesterday in the previous post...

    Happy to answer that question. We made those changes/fixes about 1.5 weeks ago. I ran a ranking report on Monday to see where we were. The changes showed up today for the first time. Let's give it a few weeks and I can update you. One day (first week of school for our area) would not be fair...

    "restaurant Raleigh" Confirmed before posting this time. Went from ranking 13 to 24 organically. Growing pains I would imagine.

    Sorry for the delay as you can image Friday is a bit busy for me. I ran my ranking report on Brightlocal before I made the changes for a base and made an notation on GA. After I made the changes Brightlocal did a preset weekly report run the next day. It reported that i slide from 12 place to...

    Per Brolands suggestion I removed it. There are a lot of "restaurants" that add that to their name on G+ and other locations. I also, per his advice, uploaded several new photos to Yelp, TripAdvisor, and G+. The change to the Website business heading was changed also. I am just wondering if...

    Broland, Thanks for the insight! I appreciate the time and advice. Looking at our citations, most have the address part that you pointed out in parity with the G+. The Yelp was off, and I have corrected. I had recently added "restaurant" to the end of the name of G+ in hopes that it would help...

    As an Italian restaurant whose home city is in Raleigh, NC one important keyword for us is "Italian Restaurant Raleigh." Organically, we rank first. Yay! But over the past 7 months since the site launched I am not seeing movement in the "local" results, now the carousel (Which I don't care...
