Is there a new/updated best practice way to link to your Google My Business Profile? Not for the purpose of leaving a review - just a link to the profile.

Yay. Received a notification in my email last night that I'm now A level 5. Bring on the perks ;)

Hey y'all. I wrote this awhile ago and I wanted to get thoughts on it, if anyone is willing.

Of course feel free to share it if need be :)

See GMB Messaging stats under "Insights - Customer actions"

This is a first. GMB social support has let me down.

I have a new client, a law firm. They have a claimed listing but there are three others out there. One of them has reviews, all are unclaimed, all have the right address and phone number, use the firm name, link to the home page and show law firm as the category. None are associated with a practitioner. But here is what GMB social support said: "It appears the duplicate pages are intended to be practitioner pages so we are unable to merge them with the main practice page. You are able to claim them with a practitioner name and manage them for the Lawyers at the location."

Am I missing something here?
