There has been an official announcement some days ago …
There will be a video tab where all videos can been seen. Unfortunately they support only videos with a length of max 30 Seconds. Thats quite short …
thank you very much. We will try our best!
thank you for your reply and sorry for following up that late but I expected to receive an email if someone posts an answer … frankly speaking I forget about it.
Regarding your first question I might have to clarify that I was talking about a “Local Knowledge Panel” with the reviews related to the GMB listing as described in this article: https://localu.org/blog/8-tips-optimize-local-knowledge-panel-google-search/ .
We do not have a wikipedia entry and never had a typical brand panel that summarizes some key facts about us.
Regarding you second question: Yes, we still get the “local knowledge panel” if the search is geo-modified (see picture attached).
P.S.: Happy new year!

there is an easy way to contact the support. Login with your google Account and go to the following link.
It is a german link, but ist should work in the states, too.

thank you for answering.
I am not sure if I have the full picture of your application of call tracking.
– Did you see any negative impact on the local visibilty of the website or the google places listing?
The question is, if one static tracking number or DNI-fallback-number on a website can lead to such negative effects. Even if the real number is displayed in the about us (German: Impressum) page which contains legal infos.
Ok, thank you. I am in contact with whitespark. Pricing per directory seems NOT to be feasable – maybe clarifying per directory if it provides a bulk option and what it will cost can be standardised. But each directory itself seems to have its own price model for this kind of work – which may vary extremly. E.g. Yelp – at least in Germany – forces you to get into a monthly plan if you want to manage multiple locations in one acount which is quite expensive (about 4 – 5K EURO per month for 600 locations).

thanks and sorry for a small freudian error, I didn’t meant “getlisted.org” but “belisted.org” :o) (I know getlisted.org it belongs to Moz Local now and unfortunately is not available for Germany, (yet???!!!) )- belisted.org is a whitelabel citation building service for agencies and seems to be part of the citation building group.
Hi David, thank you very much! I do not expect German diretories to be more sophisticated.
Only to get it right …
If a directory company is not able to check dublicates correctly regarding a bulk upload you better should check every exsting listing on that directory and create three lists:
List A Correct listings you have found -> you do not have to do anything)
List B Existing listings with oudated / wrong data -> claim and change manually
List C Missing listings -> create a list for the bulk upload
Is that correct?
Regarding List B (Claim and change): Can this (usually) be done for multiple locations of a brand chain within one single account or does each location needs its own account (and separat email)- what is common in the US / Canada?
Regarding List C (bulk upload list): Is this (usually) done within one account so that you could later change each location if you want to (e.g. opening hours) or would you have to claim them later on if have changes.
Last but not least: If a directory has bulk-uploaded this listings (list C). Is it necessary to check each one or would it be sufficient to take a random sample.
Sorry for being that detailed but I have been requested to give a price per directory (citation building and cleaning) and there is a huge difference between sending a list to a directory and saying: hey, please upload! or checking each listing upfront, claiming xx% of them manually to clean them up and check the bulk-uploaded manually afterwards.
Maybe it is just not feasably to give a price tag on this kind of task per directory. Thoughts on that are welcome, too :o)
@David and Nyagoslav – thank you very much for your advice. Your Germany Local Search Ecosystem is well known here – thank you for sharing. Concernnig the bulk upload which some directories may accept (for free or paid) I have an additional question …
Can you usually only ad missing listings or also change existing profiles this way?
Looking at 600 stores we will probably encounter many directories where some exist correctly, some with old data and some are missing. This is of course something that one should clarify upfront, but is there a chance that you can make changes this way, too. Eg. have separate lists for changes und new listings. In addition you may create doublicates if you do not match you list with the existing entries correctly.
Any ideas / expieriences on that?
That sounds interesting. A prerequisite would be that Google has a clear sense of what the correct name is.
Has Google done something like that in the past with other profile data – maybe categories …
Yes, probably you are right.
