    Trending [November 5, 2019 Local Algorithm Update] Unexplained big drops in GMB rankings

    I have a client in FL who was #3 in the 3 pack. 11/7 he tanked down about 20 notches. Then 11/9 he shot up to #1. As of 11/11 he's back to the original position and the local results are back to the way they used to be. I have several other clients in other cities who had similar patterns. And...

    Why do these three out of town lawyers show up high?

    These are very high authority sites that aggressively build links.. Try this one: Uber Accident Lawyer. (Assuming you see the Los Angeles result - can someone please report that local listing as spam, too, if you don't mind? I flag it and tweet GMB support and they just let it go.. It's...

    Yahoo! Local Listings - Aabaco - Yext - Anyone solve the mystery?

    Thanks Linda! I first contacted Raj 11/19/2015 trying to figure this out. He's offered to help in email although I wanted to know if and how the process worked (without intervention since lots of people will want to claim their Yahoo listing at some point- thousands? millions?). Following...

    Aggregated Schema Reviews for Services, Ok? Site wide or per service?
