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  It also contains outdated information (the website URL http://eliteroofsupply.com is redirecting to a different domain).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

I would have given them a zero, but that isn't possible. I signed up with them March 2014. They charged me $600.00 for the first three months in advance. I was promised to be on the first page of google within 90 days. It would probably be sooner I was told. If for any reason I was not on the first page in 90 days, they would not charge me until I was. June 21014. My company is not on the first page of google. They charged my card for $179.00 anyway. When I called to complain, and get a refund. They told me they do not give refunds. They were sorry They charged me, but apparently I was suppose to contact them not to be charged if I was not on the first page! I remembered to call for July. No charge. August my bank reissued new credit cards. I did not update Local Splash. They were very unhappy with me because my card did not work. Still not on the first page. From then on I would get emails of no charge. Finally today, I get a call. They are stopping my account. They have had no success and are freeing me to go with someone else. I asked about a refund. Not for the whole amount. I went in with my eyes open and wrote off the $600.00. What I want is the $179.00 that should never have been taken. They do not refund money over a year ago.

FRAUD! As of now the BBB is of no help. They only send my complaint to Local splash and they then send back a reply that BBB only relays to me. The BBB expects you to keep records of every phone conversation and email. Good luck doing that. If you decide to sign up with these frauds, you'd have to do that. Hope you have the means, the time or the energy. Again, FRAUD. They promise to put me on the front page, and they did not. Clearly. They put me on the front page of a search result that is meaningless to my business. They prey on small businesses with promises they are incapable of. 3 months ago they spoke to me and after a detailed evaluation, their manager agreed that there was a miscommunication and that she would refund my money. A month goes by and when I call them back, they have no record of any such conversation and they tell me that manager doesn't work there anymore. It was a great tactic to buy more time.

This company is a rip-off! They call you and tell you that you'll be listed first on google, google maps, and several other places. Give google a call and they will tell you no one can guarantee placement. Their customer service is terrible. Don't waste your time and money! Run!!!

They fell way short of providing the service that was sold to my company. Once a month for the past four months I have tried to take advantage of their guarantee before canceling my service with them last month. Now when I think that this over I get scammed for another $200. What a waste of time and energy. This company is a joke!!!

I own a Locksmith company in Florida and got a lot of competition for first page possessions, Map section is a big deal in my industry and it surly helping the organic section as well. Yes, it took longer than expected, the $200 deal worth the money for the peace you buying just by not messing directly with google, I got local splash to b**** to and whine to when I got issues with the maps (believe me... google did and doing so many updates to there maps section that you need to be on top of your site monthly), long story short, had a bunch of issues with the map a couple of months ago and got helped by Ramona that was on top of the game and did what ever she could do to get to the google technisions to figure the issue (a Lot of time even google technicians doesn't know what is the exact problem and how to solve it as well, so meet your expectation with the system as well...!). She got a hold on google after every phone call between us (for the average consumer it will take 2-3 weeks to get any kind of response from google) and checked the status of my case with google daily 'till the problem got solved. I've seeing a lot of negative reviews around for this company and can understand some of them (got a good 8 years of experience with the online marketing ext.) but for the most of it as long as you take good care of YOUR SITE CONTENT and making sure you choosing the right keywords that works for you than you should be fine. Ramona, you did a good job, I highly recommend.

Decent job at representing my business online at a reasonable price. Received 2 new customers from the internet within 3 months of getting their web marketing service. Not sure what will happen now since I cancelled, but it's my decision. Customer service is different each time you call, depends on who you talk to, but they are all professional and reasonable.

I have had loco splash for over a year now they cant get me to the front page even in one search engin. Yes I know I spelled Local wrong Just like they Spelled my name wrong and it is still on the internet and they cant seem to fix it even though they claim to be partners with Google. Don't wast your money. Willie Rodgers Rodgers Garage Door Federal Way, Wa.

Local Splash has been doing SEO for my business and has hurt my search engine rankings more then helping them. They had the wrong states listed with the cities. They were local cities in my area but with the wrong states. I'm sure it confused Google and the other search engines like Bing and Yahoo. I asked for a refund and they wouldn't give it to me. All they would do is give the following month for free. I'm not happy that my rankings dropped and on top of it they charged me.
