    SAB's Address

    So I'm nearly 100% sure I know the answer here BUT! We have had a few clients lately that are SABs and want their address shown.

    Listings Not Showing - Marked as Spam

    Thanks for clearing that up. Two of those sites are pre-existing sites the client already had, I don't think that Google would subtract from their local though just because a business had multiple organic options. I was able to find this URL https://plus.google.com/113147161060512949757 it...

Very rarely now do I really see the 7 pack or even the 3 pack while the single box and pure organic results are increasing. Its not completely gone or anything but I know that terms that used...

    Blended Algo?

    That's a bummer. I've been sending feedback to Google when I see it so hopefully it won't stick around too long; Mike seemed to have had some success there so I guess I'll just have to keep at it. Thank you Colan

    Adding a Manager

    Greetings, I was curious as to what some of your thoughts are on the new process for claiming or being added as a manager on Google (what used to be) Places.

    Verification Errors

    Good Response! I do not make edits often or take them lightly. Originally though my setup process was not as full proof and accurate as it is now so on occasion NAP edits are necessary. Other circumstances force a postcard for even Category, Description, or Image edits even. Its very hit or...
