Okay, so I get this question a lot and people get worried when they enter their businesses into Moz Local or the Yext Business Scan to see if their Listings are correct. I’m going to let you in on a little secret…the majority of the results will ALWAYS be incorrect! Why, because they’re trying to gain you as a client.
I’m going to use my personal side business as an example. I am currently Ranking #1 in the Maps and Organically for my main keyword and main city, however Moz and Yext are telling me I have several crucial errors which is a lie.
Here’s Proof of My Ranking:
Here is What Moz is telling me:
When you look above you clearly see “No Listing found on Yelp” – Guess what? That’s a Lie…see below
Here is what Yext is telling me:
And it goes on to show further problems…If I would see this and not know any better I’d think “Oh my God I need to fix this! And I’ll just buy their program.”
The point that I’m trying to make is please don’t trust any site that is trying to sell you their program and when they offer that Free Business Scan of course it’s going to come up with Errors. How else are they going to get you to buy their program? Obviously when I entered my business it showed all sorts of errors that were wrong and I’m not worrying because I know they are lying and I also know it doesn’t matter because I’m #1.
A part of what SEO Clients pay us for is we do get you into Yext and Moz any how so that’s just part of the program that we offer. I hope the above example kind of gives you an idea of what these companies try to do to catch your attention.
