Does anyone have an opinion about disengaging from Yext??

I have someone new giving me a hand with local SEO who is strongly recommending that my client disengages from Yext. We are already paying plenty for Yext but have been told it's only partially set up.

He is of the opinion that using Yext creates a lot of duplicate citations, the top directories in their network can be accessed without them and that it generally causes more problems than improvements. 

He also thinks that the service is a bit like those automated bulk linking outfits but for citations and is bound to result in problems as a result. So he'd like to disengage where we can and work on things by hand.

Does this sound like a sensible strategy or are the concerns ungrounded? I know just enough to drive an experienced local SEO nuts with second guessing, but I wasn't aware that using Yext could be a problem.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I've heard that once you stop paying for Yext, your information will revert to how it was before using their service. So if you are going to stop, you might as well do it sooner than later.

I also don't think it makes sense to pay for an seo agency along with Yext. You should do one or the other :)

New Google Chat button starting to show up in the wild

News coming from a couple of tech sites earlier this week saying that Google were testing a new Chat button in search. Yesterday I came across one for a local London florist, so took a bunch of screenshots, dug around and wrote it up in this blog post.

Not sure how "permanent" a feature this may be, but will be interesting to see if it gets any use while it's showing as active.

Have you seen it anywhere yet?
