If you want results when it comes to local search you need to be using Google My Business in your marketing strategy. Being listed is one thing, but contributing to your listing and optimizing is something else. Almost everyone goes to Google as their first resource for directive searching to find business locally. If that search fails to find what they are looking for, they may start looking on a directory. Google My Business optimization, not website optimization, is considered the most valuable local marketing strategy. According to BrightLocal’s annual local search industry survey, the top 5 most valuable services are:
1. Google My Business optimization
2. On-site optimization

FAQ Schema Markup for snippets on Google, new changes have just been implemented.
If your website is using FAQ Schema Markup for snippets on Google, new changes have just been implemented. These changes could lead to all your pages, not showing FAQ rich results in the Google search results. This because there are new FAQ markup guidelines that may affect your website. You can no longer markup the same question and answer with FAQ schema if that question and answer are in multiple pages on your site. Google wants you to mark it up on one of those FAQ pages, but not more than one. If you don't follow these new changes, you will violate Google's guidelines. Need help with Schema Mark Up? Call the digital marketing experts at 1 (800) 949-1830 for a free consultation. https://www.convexstudio.ca/schema-markup-services.html
