    Business Moving a Town Away

    So I have a situation where we were located in one town but are now moving 20 miles away. This business has already been located in the town we are moving back to. When we moved a year ago I started a new places page with a new email and site for the new town. I still have a site up for the...

    Are existing citations better than new ones?

    Was wondering what people thought on this, does it make a difference if a business has a lot of citations before a places or G+ page is created, or is creating citations after the page is created just as good? Obviously it will take some time to index all of the citaitions, but assuming all...

    Micro format markup in copy

    Wanted to see what everyone thought, it is commonly agreed that microformats are good for NAP, how about using them within content? Should I markup my business name and location anytime they come up within the copy of a site, or is this redundant?

    Ranking organically for keyword without city

    This is something that has always baffled me, sometimes I will see my site rank organically above maps listings for "keyword" other times it will slip back down to much lower on the page. I have played around with a few things and tried to figure out what would help it stay there but had no...

    Old listing showing up in maps

    What do I need to do to stop an old listing showing up in maps? I have one that I deleted and it shows as suspended in the account, but I can still see it in maps. Should I go into map maker and delete it? I am afraid it will harm my current accurate listing. Do I need to delete the listing...

    Do you ping your citations?

    This question may be taboo, but figured I would throw it out there. Some of these things are notoriously hard to index, does anyone use a pinging service (linklicious etc) to ping their citations? As of yet I have not, but as I work endless hours creating them and watch them not index I have...

    Non-conventional citations

    I had a quick question, I realized the other day that I always did this and wondered if it had any ranking effect. I sign everything I right (email, comment, forum post, guest post, pretty much everything) with my NAP citation. I started doing it out of habit from emails but realize it has...

    City plus State in H1

    Should title tags and H1's be done with service city and state? I have always just done service and city but wanted to get some ideas on adding the state onto either the title tags, the H1's or both. I have always done fine organically and with places not using the state, but I realize it is...

    How much NAP is too much NAP (on your own site)

    Sorry if this question has been asked before, I looked around and didn't find it. I am wondering if at a certain point it is possible to look like you are spamming your own address? I use hcard for NAP on the sidebar of my site and schema.og local business on the footer. I also use geotagging...

    Custom service categories in places

    Is it a good or a bad idea to add service categories to you places page that aren't auto populated when you type in a word? I don't remember being able to do this before, but it seems to be an option now. I don't mean anything spammy just something like "plumber" when it auto populates...

    Geo tagged photos on website

    I was reading a blog post I saw linked here (can't remember the exact one off the top of my head) and they were talking about the ranking factor of photo's tagged with location (I assume this is like a citation associated with the photo i.e. youtube citation) but it got me thinking. Would it...
