anyone know how to respond to reviews now? it seems really messed up. If you go to your google places listing page, https://www.google.com/business/placesforbusiness/, and log in, you see the old dashboard. 

if you then click on the listing you want, there is a link on the resulting page that says 'respond to reviews'. 

when i click on that it goes to the corresponding google+ page for that location but doesnt have any functionality to edit reviews?

Thanks +Scott Rowley. It definitely seems like a bug. I'll do that. It's weird to see the listings in the transition between the places and google+ platforms.

Just started seeing this report in Adwords today. You?

Looks like you can compare organic GWT data and Adwords data side by side.

basic htaccess file help?

my current new wordpress site i created for a client doesnt seem to have an htaccess file.

can anyone help me with the basic file contents i would need to do the following:


1. set the canonical url to be www.mydomain.com
2. fix the 404 error that shows up if you try to add the www. subdomain to the domain name (right now only the domain.com url works not the www.domain.com subdomain versions

You can create the htaccess file manually, but I think that the wordpress has good tools for changing the URL and fixing the 404 error, without touching the htaccess. Have a little look at the different plugins that are available and at the things that you can find already in the environment.

Can you share the URL of the Google+ page you cannot respond to reviews with
and the name, address, phone no of the business if not shown.

My clients are running around 38% not provided. Sticking more with landing page visit metrics now.
 
(Not Provided) increases by more than 10% in August

Just reviewing some of our sites over the last 30 days and we have seen a similar stat across the board - Not provided has increased significantly in August with 1 or 2 sites surpassing 75% for the first time.

Having a look at notprovidedcount.com shows similar stats as well for a number of sites over the last few weeks but no one has really identified the root cause.

Not seen any major updates (beyond a Google+ app update in Aug) that provide any reasonable explanation for this. Has anybody else seen a similar trend? Help appreciated #SEO   #notprovided   #googlesearch

I am glad this is happening ( or happened).   Making and optimizing both felt redundant.
