Your home-based local business will often appear in Google My Business listings with a Street View image of your house if your address is not hidden.
An accurate, well-optimized Google My Business listing plays a very important role in Local SEO, but it may look strange to have an image of your house pop up associated with your business in search results.
However, there are some important things to consider before removing it.
As most of you are probably aware, South Louisiana was greatly impacted recently by a massive flooding event. Eddy and I grew up in southern Louisiana. My two younger brothers, Seth and Asher, and their families live in the city of Central, LA where 27000 of the 28000 homes were flooded. They have lost the vast majority of the contents of their homes.
We are collecting donations on behalf of my brothers via a YouCaring campaign. If you are able and want to make a donation, it will be greatly appreciated and go directly towards Seth, Asher and their families getting back into their houses and making them homes again.
Part of a comprehensive Local SEO strategy involves cleaning up and standardizing citations for your business.
If your business has ever had a name change, or phone number change, you may have some duplicate listings floating around out there that need to be removed.
We recently encountered an inaccurate extra listing on HotFrog, so we are sharing how to remove a duplicate listing from HotFrog.
