    Control GMB Listing Data & More With New Yext Publisher Suggestions

    Excited to announce this on the heels of Google My Business integration and Yext for Healthcare launch!

    We’re always looking for ways to help you improve the information and content that appears online about your locations — from correcting inaccuracies in your data, which confuse customers, to powering real-time updates for enhanced content like photos and special offers. Today, we’re introducing a new way to optimize your location data with Publisher Suggestions.

    Publishers in the PowerListings Network — like Google, Apple, Facebook, and Bing — occasionally receive submissions from users with suggested data and content updates for specific locations. With Publisher Suggestions, you can now view those suggestions directly in the Yext dashboard, and choose whether or not to incorporate them across your listings.

    “Our direct publisher integrations give you maximum control and mean your data and content is never overwritten,” said Jon Kennell, Yext VP Product. “Publisher Suggestions helps ensure that the information businesses store and share in Yext is the most accurate, up-to-date, and complete.”

    Starting today, Yext customers using Google will see Publisher Suggestions for their Google listings in a new tab under PowerListings. Simply approve the suggestion to see it appear across all your listings. Or reject it. And rest assured that you’re always in full control of your location data.

    Yext Partner, Scott Robbins, Owner of WSI Design & Digital Marketing, has been using Publisher Suggestions to optimize his clients’ information and content.
    “As a digital marketing company, it’s critical that our small business clients have consistent and complete online business listings,” said Robbins. “The Publisher Suggestions tool allows us to achieve this goal by ensuring the information and content we publish is fully optimized. The Yext interface makes this a flawless process.”

    Yext Partners and Enterprise customers can turn on notifications in Account Settings to be alerted to each new Publisher Suggestion. Small business customers who use Google will receive alerts any time there is a new Publisher Suggestion, starting today.

    Hey Raj, another very cool addition to the Yext toolbox!

    I know data changing on us in GMB is a big deal, especially if you manage lots of listings.
    So this should be a very welcome new feature for Yext users!

    I hadn't seen this yet, and it's AWESOME! This was the only reason I was still logging into Google, as we're using Yext for most everything, so this is going to save a lot of time for me.

    Good to hear!

    I figured those who manage big accounts and live in the Yext dashboard would appreciate this.

    Re: Control GMB Listing Data & More With New Yext Publisher Suggestions

    Didn't see this answered on the Yext blog or in any of the videos: do we know what happens if notifications for these edit suggestions are ignored? Wondering if they get published after a certain amount of time if no action is taken. Or does it depend on the publisher?

    Re: Control GMB Listing Data & More With New Yext Publisher Suggestions

    Hey Kerry,

    Great Question! Publisher Suggestions will only be published online if you explicitly accept them. There is no time frame in which you need to act — if you take no action, the suggestion will not be published.

    We'll mark a suggestion as "Expired" in Yext if you change the field it addresses in the Yext dashboard, or if the publisher makes a new suggestion for the same field.

    We will also update the Tooltip to make this clear, thanks for the feedback!

    That's a really great feature actually, great add to the mix. It'd be even one of the top secondary benefits to the whole package in my view, great way to keep track of all the noise coming in that could influence business data integrity.
