    Florist Melb - Same Day Flower Delivery Melbourne

    Amazing find, Sergiu! So far most of us focused on citations and reviews, while minimizing or completely ignoring the pluses. Guess it's time to start pushing our customers to click the magic red button.

    Re: Local Carousel TOP Factors - Correlation Analysis

    "it is very difficult to create fake signals from high authority accounts"

    This explains the results nicely. I remember thinking years ago that we would reach a point to where Google would use their own user accounts to judge and rank things. Why not use user account history to more accurately confirm signals from the web?
