    Animated Cover Photos?

    Thanks for the shout out Linda. I do have to agree with the other posts about load time though. Sometimes it's frustrating.

    GMB Upgrade Error

    I had the same thought as Linda. You can always call Google Support and ask them whats going on. There's a 50/50 chance that you will get someone that can help shed some insight and they may even fix it for you.

    Best Site Audit Tools

    I've used quite a few. Raven SEMrush Moz Bright Local Screaming Frog Rank Ranger WhiteSpark Gshift SEOrch My preference for analysis is definitely screaming frog. Raven or SEOrch comes in second since It's a little easier to read especially when you need to relay that info to your clients...

    Pigeon Analysis - New Insights about this Crazy Google Local Algo & the Constant Flux

    Re: Pigeon Analysis - New Insights about this Crazy Google Local Algo & the Constant I also have noticed that Apartment searches have disappeared. Searches like "Apartments In Salt Lake City" however, "Apartments Near Me" shows the pack. It's possible that Google is wanting more of a localized...

    Local SEO - Why is this ranking so high?

    A little late to the party but I will put my 2 cents in anyway. I have noticed that, not only what Linda said earlier about the keyword density, but sites that tend to rank in the maps pack usually have the Google+ page linked in some way. Either through the publisher tag hidden on their site...

    A Case Study on Local Search Keywords & Traffic

    Hey guys, We recently did a case study for our industry and would love if someone else would be able to do one since we are restricted to a specific demographic. The case study shows that, aside from branded terms, keywords rank low on the first page, or not at all, are driving near %66 of...

    Anyone still stuck in the old Google Places dashboard?

    Chris, An easy way to check for duplicates is by reverting to the old Google maps and searching for the phone number in quotes.

    Did Google Maps misplace San Antonio, TX?

    Well ok, so maybe its not missing but it isn't searchable in Google Maps. A recent search shows that searching for "San Antonio, TX" does not yield any results for the city. The old Google Maps only shows one listing called "San Antonio Car Carrier". - Props to those guys for some good local SEO...

    Google Local Page Layout - Another Test or Update?

    Yep. Seeing the same thing. 4.9 rating with nothing but 5 star reviews. I also like the new/teaser layout but it seems that all Google did was move the review panel to the middle. :rolleyes:

    Google+ Local Display Update - New About Page Layout

    Glad to see this actually took hold. I like the new focus on reviews. This, of course, raises more questions. - How important are reviews for ranks? That's a very common debate in our community but you cannot deny that this is one of the deciding factors of someone picking a business. Crappy...

    Google+ Local Display Update - New About Page Layout

    I'm located in Salt Lake City, UT. I've tested with Chrome, Firefox and, as painful as it was, IE. All show the same results depending on whether you are logged into Google or not.

    Google+ Local Display Update - New About Page Layout

    Some may already be seeing the new update where Google has changed the layout to 3 columns which seems to focus on reviews. A "widget", of sorts, that includes 3 buttons (Review, Directions and Photos) now shows up in the top left. This makes it easier for the user to find where to leave a...

    Google Update (Screenshots): Product bar at the top is gone.

    Decided to post in this thread if anyone is scared that Google+ has disappeared. I have received an update to my search page and the black product bar at the top is gone. Here are some shots for your viewing pleasure. I'm not seeing this as affecting the SERP's so it must be just another tweak.

    Google allowing Management of Places Listings. Can anyone else confirm?

    From the old account 1. You need to have created a Google+ Local page for your business. 2. The places listing must be merged with the + Page. (This will not work unless they are merged.) 3. From the Google+ page dashboard - assign a manager to the page. In the new account 1. Accept the...

    Hey guys, I just tried this method with a client that has the old dashboard. IT worked!! They need to have a Google+ Local page built and merged with the old dashboard listing though. The really good part..... The listing was pending in the old dashboard and now, in my account and the new...
