    Yahoo Local Business Listings

    Yahoo is very difficult to delete/update listings on. You can try and reclaim the listing and edit it but the edits have to approved and can take months to be applied. If you are just trying to delete it you are going to have to find out where Yahoo is pulling the listing information from...

    Local Citation Tool for Multiple Locations

    Thanks Dustybones. Whatever I get will have to be able to add/remove citations from the larger data aggregaters. I am looking for the best option between Yext, Brightlocal, Moz and Whitespark.

    Duplicate in Name of Business with Attorneys and Doctors

    Infogroup will delete practitioner profiles but you need to go through a process to verify that you are the practitioner. I had to claim the listing, call them and then have the attorney email them from her verified account. Then they deleted it.

    What to do with business with different locations?

    It really depends on what you want to do here. The correct thing to do would be to mark them as closed.

    Does your presence in Google local pack have an effect on your organic ranking?

    In my experience local rankings are influenced by organic ones (pigeon update) and not vice versa. They are two very different algorithms. In a competitive market you usually have to have something ranking on the first page organically to show up in the local pack.
