Sorry if this is old news, but has Google killed GMB phone support? Can't find it for the life of me. What's the situation? Thanks!

Here is the latest message I received from @GoogleSmallBiz:

New on SEOno - Over the past year I submitted a campaign that I worked on to five different awards organisations... Here's what I learnt along the way and thought about the whole process:

AdWords Local Pack Ads question: Is there a way to set AdWords to only appear in the map (as part of the local pack ads) and not in the normal Google Search sponsored results as well? Or is it the case (as I'm presuming) that they go together hand-in-hand? I'm working with a client who only wants to use AdWords in the maps and nowhere else. Thanks!

I believe you also have to enable search partners to get map ads: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2616017?hl=en-AU

Search Partners are hard to track and control. There is a segment option to show search partner data, but nothing down to the level of what partner.

Some search partners give themselves away by the nature of the query term they use. e.g. business directories often show a breadcrumb like search query. This may provide a way to cherry pick queries that maps causes.

New on SEOno - If you're doing HARO repurposing (i.e. reusing HARO responses that don't get picked up) then here's a quick I-can't-believe-I-didn't-think-of-it-earlier tip to help keep on top of things...

I recently hired Owain of Tree Top for a small project and wasn't disappointed - I'd happily recommend him.

I hired Harding Evans to help me to give advice relating to a money claim, after a client unfortunately refused to pay a few invoices I was owed. I was really impressed with Nicola and William's advice as well as their willingness to help and to make sure that I fully understood the legalese involved. I wouldn't hesitate to use HE again or to refer them in - in fact I have already do so.

BPU Accountants were recommended to me by my parents, who have been working with them for years. I'd just started my own business and wanted to appoint an accountant who could help me with my tax return and could also answer any questions that I had, as I was new to self-employment and knew very little about tax issues. Dealing first with Martin and then Adam, I was not disappointed - no question was too small, and often they would reply to me on the same day, within a matter of hours. I found them to be very approachable and friendly, which is important when you're dealing with something so important. I'd happily recommend them to anyone in Cardiff/South Wales who's looking for an accountant - I'm looking forward to continuing to work with them over the coming years.

I've been a member of Welsh ICE for over a year, pretty much since starting my own business. ICE has been a massive help to me: opening up business funding, getting support from their mentoring scheme, networking with fellow members (resulting in a fair few new clients/projects), using their meeting rooms and having an official office address that I can use on business cards. It's more than just office space - and it beats working from home...! Also, living in the north of Cardiff, it's such an easy commute - it's quicker than heading into the centre of Cardiff from where I am. I really recommend it. If anyone I know goes self-employed, I let them know about ICE straight away.

The food was nice but the place is unclean and unhygienic: the highchair for the baby had old food glued onto it; there was food stuck to the menus on our tables; there was food stuck to the wall(?!) where we were sat; and worst of all, there were two hairs in my food, one of which was curly and either looked like a chest hair or something worse. Absolutely vile.

Seen a few bands here - it's a great venue. Nice, friendly atmosphere and staff. I just wish we had an equivalent in Cardiff!
