…but not really.

I mean who really wants to understand how duplicate business listings are created and how the problem can be solved? It’s not exactly cocktail party conversation.

But if your business is affected by them, like every business that relies on local search traffic is, perhaps you might want to take a few minutes out of your day and read the white paper I wrote for Yext, The Definitive Guide To Duplicate Business Listings.

Here’s the fancy graphic they made for it:

    I’ve been arguing for a while that the use of call forwarding numbers on directory publisher websites has the potential to hurt the local SEO of customers.

    I thought alot of business directory listings was a bad method in SEO.

    Wow. Thanks Andrew. Stable vs. Dynamic listing id’s. I did not know and this has my mind spinning. Love the “AKA” format trick with Publishers. Can I ask how you are discovering the difference? Speaking/working with publishers, viewing source, etc..
