    Google's New Announcement About Review Schema

    I am seeing this already take effect on a client's results in organic SERPS. Stars were there yesterday and now they are gone. 3rd result had stars for a while now and that is no longer the case. However other pages from the same site still show reviews snippets. Rankings not affected so far...

    Is This New? GMB Dashboard Home Screen - "Unlock Your Plan"

    Perhaps I missed this but I haven't seen this before. I just claimed a GMB listing for a new client and saw this on their home screen. When you click "Unlock your plan" then the second image follows you along as you make sure to fill out your listing all the way. You can go back to it to...

    That is very true Yan. That is why I love Local Falcon. Somebody should buy the guy that made that a cup of coffee :)

    Just for kicks and to beat a dead horse I thought I would provide an update. So I still haven't done anything that I would consider a ranking factor to anything and the rankings continue to improve. I wanted to know if there would be a drop off over time, but two months later things seem good...

    @chicoelnino I tried it with a naked URL first when starting the experiment and I can't say for sure if it made a difference but it did seem to get the citations indexed faster with an anchor text link when I adjusted all of them to have anchor text. It probably would have worked even better if...

    Just an update. I still haven't done anything else to my own site besides get these citations indexed and the rankings just keep going up. Here is a shot as of today. I have started this for my clients and will report back on if I experience similar results with them.

    Bright Local Lead Gen Tool

    Tim, I should have been more clear. My apologies. I meant that it worked in that the lead did come in, it showed up as expected in the BL dashboard and I got notified by email, and it had a copy of the business info that the person was interested in optimizing along with results of the report...

    Bright Local Lead Gen Tool

    I got a lead from the BL widget last week. It was a guy in the UK. I have no idea how he found my West Palm Beach Local SEO page lol. But it did work.

    New Wordpress Plugin to Manage GMB Posts

    Andy, I am still working with both of them but am leaning towards Tim's recomendation. They both have some pros and cons. I hope to provide some more in-depth info on both of them in the future.

    I had that happen to some of mine too but they weren't from very high quality citation sites anyways. The good ones have stuck.

    Thanks to all who have been providing feedback along the way with this thread. I wrapped all of this test up into a how to guide. I wanted to create a tool to simplify this process but there are some nice tools already out there that the guide pulls together. I hope it is helpful: The...

    @MattPelkey You are correct. I can't control all the variables in this test for sure, but there is nothing I am aware of that would be adjusting the rankings except the indexed citations.

    So here is another update on the rankings improvements. Things are getting better! Here were the rankings on the last screenshot I posted on 11/22 again for reference: Now here is the latest results from today, 11/27: All the red is gone and there is a glimmer of green! I have to...

    Sorry for the delay on an update. Somehow I wasn't getting notifications on this post. So it appears there have been some rankings increase from getting these citations indexed but nothing earth-shattering. I haven't been doing anything else worth noting to get rankings to go up on purpose...

    I wanted to provide an update on this test of getting citations indexed in case anyone else will find it useful. It has been about 15 days or so since I created a page on my site with links to all my major citations that were NOT indexed in Google. After a couple days about 8 new ones had been...
