Managing over 100k business listings has created some pretty odd usernames.  Generally the login username is the businesses phone number or based upon their business name, but sometimes that isn't available, so something else is automatically assigned.  This can lead to some pretty non-intuitive, non-memorable usernames.

Did you know that you can change a clients username?  By sending a request * Member with a message like change username to samIam to make a modification.  It will get done automatically by the system and the business will be able to immediately login with the new username.

Impressive to see this local business advertisement on YouTube from +The Roofing Center.  See the video here: Discount roofing material

While the video is greatly authentic, I was equally impressed to see the well designed website eroofs.org, social activity https://twitter.com/sanvalle and even their own mobile app (iOS and Android!) but they do need some online help:

Here's the #OnlineBusinessReview consulting-

1) Business listing syndication.  The listing (i.e. Google+ Local Business Listing) should be reclaimed and updated.  It also contains outdated information (the website URL http://eliteroofsupply.com is redirecting to a different domain).

2) YouTube Video Optimization
  This video is authentic and gets a good message across; that might be adequate.  But this is costing money.  A YouTube ^paid ad^ should have a few bells and whistles like: 
  intro / ending graphic
  overlay with their business logo
  streaming text in footer for their tagline or primary search phrase, name address phone #NAP , and the website URL.

3) Reviews - In addition to the Google listing being unclaimed, it is a ghosttown - there are 0 Reviews for the business.  Reputation Wave to get 5-10 customer ratings would highlight their business listing in Google. 

4) Highlighting their Google search results.  Since their Twitter is being updated regularly, we could establish automatic re-posting of that material on their Google+ Page.

Hopefully this advice makes it to them +Abe Lopez.  Next time we can address at onsite conversions optimization and #SEO .  If there is any question, post it in the comments below.

Open Internet means that ISPs can't block traffic (e.g. VOIP, Skype...) a gray area is if they can prefer/prioritize traffic e.g. faster for services they monetize.

What would you do if you walked into your office and found 700 balloons packed wall to wall? Well that's exactly what was waiting for our Director of Product Operations, Debra Northart, on her birthday this morning! #HappyBirthday  Debra!

Many of us arrogantly consider the YellowPages book to be a relic of the past, however this year that could be considered a reality.   The YellowPages print giant  +YP ( +YP Advertising ) reports that it's revenues in digital are finally surpassing that of print advertising. 

Taken from their article http://url.localsplash.com/IYPGrowth --
The company formerly known as Yellow Pages has worked hard in recent years to transfer its historical strength – helping consumers find local businesses via large printed books – into a business that’s now booking more than $1 billion in digital revenue.

“Five years ago, 18% of our revenue was digital, and in 2014 it was 44%. Next year it will be over half,” YP Chief Revenue Officer David Lebow said.

“Print is very much in a managed decline,” Lebow said. “Fewer people use the print book, and revenue follows audience. When you have 80 million users a month, ad dollars are going to follow.”

When people search [on YP], 77% of people who search go and contact an advertiser right afterward, and 66% make a purchase after search.

Web presence is actually a hard thing for people to do: a mobile-optimized website, video of their store or location, having up-to-date phone numbers and store hours.

A great video and YouTube channel banner art (cover photo). Notice how the graphic displays well in mobile, desktop and tablet. This can be accomplished by providing optimized media that will resize & crop intelligently so that it didn't appear distorted or stretched.

Kudos to +Rick Kuck  #digitalmedia

This company lied and essentially took hundreds of dollars from me. Customer service was deplorable and they made me add search phrases. I struggled to add more search phrases. Then they used the least searched phrase and one I didn't even want added to tell me that I ended up on first page. I never saw my name in top 3 like they said. But they said the fine print just says first page. Whatever. I feel raped and violated by them.

For six months my company was billed for a SEO program that promised to have our business show up on the first page of Google. Each time we called, we were told that changes to the program were being made, and that google had changed they way businesses would be found. However, no reports were received to allow us to track the progress of these so called changes, allowing us to monitor our program's progress. We were told that those were trade secrets. In addition, if you don't call them letting them know your not appearing on the from page they will bill you. Read that clearly... The people who are in charge or your program...and should know when your program appears.. want you to tell them if they've done their job or not each month. Seriously considering doing something class action to deter companies like Local Splash from defrauding small business owners.

don't trust the guarantee, it is not guaranteed and is impossible to prove your case even if you have proof. I was not on the first page and I called them on the 15th of the month to remind them I am not getting what I was told. 15 days later, they charged the card. I called them again 2nd day after the charged the card and they told me that even if the records shows I called 15 days prior, there was no note on the account not to charge the card. Basically they fail to do their job and they will charge you because of that. They refused to refund the card so I cancel the account.

We have tried 5 different companies and have the best results with Local Splash. they do and have done exactly what they said they would. we are on the first page on all searches for the keywords we are working on. it takes a while to see results as does with any company.

After canceling my account mid month, the representative "suspended" my account and after a few months I was billed $199 on my credit card. Meaning they did not do as I requested. After speaking with a representative, they would not refund my monies when they clearly did not do as they said they would. Very poor rating due to incompetencies of representatives and them clearly trying to keep a client "hooked" for selfish reasons. So not only am I out the $199, I have nothing to show from their service.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? This is not a good company. I won't continue with the onslaught. Instead, I'll make a positive contribution: Give RankNova Marketing a look instead. They actually know what they're doing.

This is an updated review of Local splash. Anthony J Devincentis contacted us and resolved our dispute. He was professional and quick to resolve our concerns. It seems like local splash has or is becoming customer service oriented. This 5 star review is my opinion of the way local splash handled my concerns.

WARNING! Great salesmen, TERRIBLE service. After 6 weeks, I was still not on the first page of Google. Once they get your credit card info it's over... That's all they want. Robbed $800 from me till I cancelled my credit card.
