    Non-personalized results from mobile searches on your phone

    I would prefer to use my own phone to search while I am in those areas. I will be there working anyway so doing a quick search isn't much of a problem. I just want to make sure that I get a clean search as if I was a normal person searching for a plumber for the first time.

    Two issues with GMB - Please advise

    I do not have the "Add a caption" option. Maybe the iPhone app has less features? It does say that I manage the profile so I am logged in properly.

    Non-personalized results from mobile searches on your phone

    If I understand that correctly, that tool does not work with service areas businesses that do not list their address in GMB, is that correct?

    Two issues with GMB - Please advise

    Joy, I looked all over the GMB iPhone app and I can't find anywhere to add captions to pictures. Can you please tell me where it can be done?

    Spam fighting questions

    Yes, that article is what brought me here to the forum originally. I think maybe it is too advanced for an end user like me (not an SEO pro). I think I might not be doing all the little things that all you pros already know. Also, yes, I have used the redressal form.

    Non-personalized results from mobile searches on your phone

    I have gone over the hill both in life and in customers who find me using mobile devices above desktop. I would like to drive around to see how I rank in GMB (and organic) in various areas around me. How would you recommend I do that on my iPhone? Is it good enough to just use an Incognito...

    Spam fighting questions

    I am still having trouble with spam. An issue that keeps occurring is when another plumber has 2-5 listed with the same name, but has a different address in each town he serves (but the addresses are clearly just houses). I will choose to edit the listing, then remove it, then choose...

    Duplicate test in Descriptions

    About 10 years ago I made a website for my plumbing company and wrote 3 paragraphs for the homepage that I was very proud of, since I am horrible at writing. They spelled out what my company does and where and explained our mindset on service. Many friends and family complimented me on that...

    Oddity in Search Console

    Now its down to 26 Valid pages and 0 Errors. Does anyone know what this could be? is there a way to force SC to check mobile usability of pages? Shouldn't it draw from the sitemap (which works perfectly in the Coverage section of SC).

    Two issues with GMB - Please advise

    I noticed that I get repeats when I both add a photo and make a post about it. The only reason I made the post is because there was no place to add a little description. But if I can go into the mobile app to do it, then I will do it that way. It's just a pain having to do it in two ways...

    Verified Address of SAB

    I believe when he said "service areas" he meant the list of services areas that you can choose in Google My Business. I have read that list does not effect your rankings, only the highlighted area on the map.

    Oddity in Search Console

    In my Search Console I have 44 pages submitted in my sitemap and the coverage shows that all 44 pages are valid and indexed. No issues with them. But oddly enough it only lists 27 pages in Mobile Usability. What about the other 17 pages? They are not listed as errors, just are just not...

    Two issues with GMB - Please advise

    I noticed that I couldn’t label the pictures I was uploading through Google My Business website. I didn’t know that you can label pictures if uploaded through a different app. Can anyone tell me which is the best method to upload pictures? The iPhone GMB app? The iPhone Google Maps app...

    Spam fighting questions

    My main concern is how to (which selections to make) report SAB's like plumbers who have their address showing in the GMB results but that address is clearly their own house. Also, there are many small plumbing companies who have their same business name and phone number on 4-5 listings, each...

    Spam fighting questions

    I am a plumber and would like to do some spam fighting of other local plumbers, and I have some questions. I have been reading here and linked blog articles, but am still confused. I have a very old Google/Gmail account that I use for everything: my business, GMB, and also personal (I am a...
