Oh didn’t realize you only did BV for Case.
Still it’s telling that it’s the same problem. So could either be the dupe needs minimized OR could be something to do with BV on both.December 23, 2014 at 9:23 am #6323
Thank you for the warning Linda, I’ll let it sit for a bit.
Joy – the practitioner listings used to have the “chiropractor” category as their primary, as well as other sub categories, but I changed the primary category to “doctor” a few days ago in an effort to solve this issue and keep the IP listings from competing with the main listing.
I uploaded BV to both the business and the IP listings so I’m not sure what you are referencing with “Oh didn’t realize you only did BV for Case.”December 23, 2014 at 9:28 am #6324

No sorry, I meant I didn’t realize you only did BV not SEO.
I guess you know it but I didn’t see the other practitioner page til now.
Looks like you minimized it but also has BV.
I need to go run and help a bunch of other folks. Hope this was all helpful.December 26, 2014 at 7:39 pm #6342
For those of you that have been advising me on this, I wanted to let you know that I did a search for “Mandeville Chiropractor” today and the primary business listing is back in the #2 spot, so it looks like the downgrading of the IP listings did the trick, at least for now. I am going to meet with this client in the new year to talk about other strategies necessary to maintain rank, but I wanted to say thanks to you all for your help with this client thus far. Happy New Year!December 27, 2014 at 9:32 am #6343
Hey JR, thanks for letting us know. Minimizing the practitioner always works, in all cases I’ve seen anyway.
I like to track the time it takes for changes like this to take effect. How long ago did you make all the changes? About a week? So the delay like I said was just a matter of Google having time to re-spider and re-index the practitioner page. Looks like she finally updated cache on the Dr page 12/23 then you noticed the ranking had corrected on the 26th. Awesome to hear!December 31, 2014 at 11:08 am #6383
Yeah, i’d say about a week, though it could have been a little quicker as you say since I didn’t look myself till the 26th. I was also making little edits over several days so that may have slowed things down. I know, I know – it’s better to make edits all at once – live and learn!
