Data Aggregators and PO Boxes

Tyson LinkNow

Aug 2, 2019

I work for a company that provides websites as well as online marketing. We have some clients who want to have a mailing address, such as a PO Box, on their website. We do not use these addresses for our GMB pages, but will include them on the websites as "Googleoff tag" text. We have noticed that some aggregators, such as Info Group, will pull this information and display it in citation databases even though it shouldn't be our marketing information. I have heard that posting the mailing address on the website as an image instead of text is a workaround to this issue, but is there any other solutions available? And will having these mailing/secondary addresses on our website hurt our online marketing?

Thank you,

Do these businesses register with the Secretary of State using the PO Box? Information could be originating from there as well.
