Have you found that it takes weeks for google to recognize citations in the “more about this place” section of your places page?
in some cases, yes. In others, with authoritative sources, you can get recognition in a matter of hours.
Thanks for the post! I found it very helpful.
I can’t seem to find a way to remove images that I wish to replace with others in my client’s GP account. Some were submitted by me as a user – before I realized what I’d done so these duplicated images I later uploaded for him as the business owner. Anyone know how to remove these duplicate images?
I am still looking for a way to include two locations on one Google Business Page. I think there is a way to have tow separate pages and connect them to a main page but this as I see it will create some redundancy. Not sure if that is really an option.
Excellent post. I’m facing many of these issues as well..
