    Google My Business Changes (HUGE) :(

    Anyone notice some large algorithm changes with Google My Business traffic?

    All my clients across the board have considerable less traffic now from Google My Business. Google is not giving anymore snowball traffic from ranking for terms. Basically you rank for a term like mold remediation toronto and Google will put your map listing on terms for mold cleaning toronto etc. Even though you didn't intentionally target it anymore. Now they don't do this as much.

    Which sucks because my clients are getting less calls now.

    Here are some changes to correct this issue.
    1. We will start having to implement more paid traffic with Google Adwords Express and everything to make up for this lost free traffic.
    2. Also start creating more pages to target long tail keywords that are related to the main money keywords.
    3. Install re-targeting (facebook & Google) and make ads for this for everyone that visits the website. (most sales today take 5-7 interactions/encounters to make the sale)


    Google is no longer good but evil lol. As I always say, Google's biggest competitor is SEO and they are coming for it more and more.

    they do this to make more money for their Adwords Express system. Less traffic from GMB equals more users for their ad system since business will have less free business from SEO
