March’s updates include the following:

  • Added a way to see the city a SAB is using for their address since Google removed it from the Knowledge Panel.
  • Updated the first method for finding duplicate listings at the same address as the method to do this has changed.
  • Added a 5th method to find duplicate listings on Google Maps.
  • Added a section to indicate what words cause posts & reviews to get filtered and a list of 42 different words that currently trigger Google’s filter & rejections on posts (will be updating this regularly).
  • Added a section to clarify what business types are allowed practitioner listings and why.
