    Debate: GMB Call Tracking - Yay or Nay?

    Has anybody noticed a drop in direct calls reported on GMB insights after adding the call tracking number as primary number? Could the unfamiliarity of the new number cause a drop? Thanks!

    Getting 500 Server Error when signing in to GMB dashboard!

    Hello Linda, the error got resolved on its own. I wonder if it had something to do with the GMB API dashboard update. Thanks!

    MOZ tool not picking up ExpressUpdate listings!

    Thanks for weighing in Darren. i also noticed that the ExpressUpdate listings for clients subscribed to MOZ Pro are being picked up by the tool every time.

    ExpressUpdate Claim System Half Broken

    And now MOZ Local is not picking up the ExpUpdate listing if even if there exists one - not sure about the MOZ Pro 'check listing' scan report though.

    MOZ tool not picking up ExpressUpdate listings!

    Of late, i have noticed that the MOZ Local tool is not picking up listings on ExpressUpdate even if a good listing exists on ExpressUpdate.com. Has anybody else been experiencing the same?

    ExpressUpdate Claim System Half Broken

    Yes, i too faced the same problem that Joshua encountered while adding a new listing. Moreover, when i try to edit a freshly verified listing, the changes made do not seem to stick after i hit save - of course i take care to activate the green 'Confirm' button below each field.

    Best name format for single practitioner businesses on local directories other than G

    Thanks Colan, Linda. So wouldn't that be viewed as inconsistency in the name by Google and have little impact on the local ranking? Practice name in Yelp Practice name in YP.com Practice name: practitioner on InfoUSA Sorry to sound naive but i really need help to make a decision on this one.

    Best name format for single practitioner businesses on local directories other than G

    Google's guidelines are quite clear for adding names of businesses that have a single public facing practitioner: Practice name: Practitioner I am curios to know what name formats are all of us here adding to other IYPs? In my experience, Yelp does not allow the "Practice name...

    What a great G+ listing Description

    Yeah, sometimes they just can't keep their hand off, can they? They find it all too tempting.. brag about themselves and clicking submit or get sucked into a rep's pitch. Yellowbook360 is still ok but do what you can and warn them against messing with the YP.com listing (their paid ad). The...

    MapQuest Local Business Center is Shutting Down

    Remains to be seen if descriptions, website URLs, photos and videos that have been added in the past to a basic listing are left untouched.

    Yahoo Local Claimed by ATT/Yellowpages?

    That is not all. The paid YP.com ad pushes through to MercCircle (although this can be easily dealt with), CitySearch (and to Judy's Book and Insiderpages), SuperPages and Local.com, further compounding the problem. So it is a good idea to keep monitoring listings on these all important IYPs too

    Client Moved - Google+ Local shows updated Address but Old Location

    A reviewer finally approved my edits on the map maker. So "reporting a problem" through GMM, moving the marker to the location we want it, and saving / submitting the request is the solution to this as Andrew had recommended earlier in this thread. And also simultaneously reporting wrong pin...

    Client Moved - Google+ Local shows updated Address but Old Location

    I not only moved the marker to the correct position and submitted the report through the 'report a problem' on GMM but also submitted a support request to correct the pin marker position through their Contact us console by giving them the URL to the Google listing and the exact location...

    Mapquest, USCity.net, Yasabe and Yellowise - no more free!

    Sure that is one way to do it, but i don't think you can create a new account for the purpose of claiming or adding a listing. https://support.mapquest.com/hc/en-us/articles/200038508-How-to-Create-an-Account-for-Business-Listings and when you click MapQuest Business Listings you are led to...

    Mapquest, USCity.net, Yasabe and Yellowise - no more free!

    Correction - Yasabe listings are still free to claim, add or update Yes Greg, no more free 'jumpstart listings' from LocalBOTW.org.

    Mapquest, USCity.net, Yasabe and Yellowise - no more free!

    As recent as last month, one could add or edit listings on these directories free of cost using some workarounds - but no more. You now need to go through Yext only, of course for a price. What has been your experience with these directories?
