    Google Warns about Doorway Page Algo Update - Could Affect Local

    Well if nothing else, this provides another item on the list of Google changes to share with clients. I agree it is difficult to know what's what on this one. I found creating unique content for each service and each city helps as well, but it is time consuming. Thanks for another great...

    New Powerhouse Group Trying to Kill Google Local 7 Pack

    Today's online local market place is competitive. It used to be simple. Buy a bigger sign or buy a bigger add in the Yellow Pages (talk about expensive!) or maybe buy a bigger ad in a newspaper. Notice the keyword was BUY. It's not so simple today. Today, you're buying the expertise of a...

    Don't Merge Google+ Local with G Business Pages Yet?

    Linda, if the business already has a verified Google+Local page, should they setup a Google+ for the social side? Most of mine only have the Google+Local as I've been waiting for the "merge." Just seems like they're missing out on some good Google juice without the Google+ Business page...

    How to Detect VERIFIED STATUS on Google+ Local pages?

    Yes, still having issues. About the only way to consistently know you have verified the page is to see the verification in the Google Places panel. Seems like Google is working on the Review side of the page rather than rest of it. Theresa 8-)
