Hi,

I have a client that has several mattress stores. When they signed on, I realized that they had the city and state in their GMB business name. . . so, its <company name> - Chicago, IL etc.

They seem to rank fine today, but in reading Google's guidelines, this isn't what they want (at least right now, they did change this and change it back).

Do you think that this would put their traffic at risk if I removed city and state from the GMB business name? I was all ready to do it, and then I got a bit concerned.

Thanks for the response. I'm not sure which one to do, though, I think this client is pretty short term focused, so I'm leaning on not changing.

The other problem with this is that, if I do directory submission, do I include the name, or the name plus city and state to match the GMB listing. I think I'm stuck using the name plus city and state in the directory listings too.
