Is Using Personal URL Shorteners A Smart Move For Local GMB Pro Posts?

By April

In episode 193 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if using personal URL shorteners is a smart move for local GMB Pro posts.

The exact question was:

In your training you teach to use URL shortners but to stay away from bitly and that the Google URL shortner will be discontinued so to stay away from that one as well.

I have a shortner software called little.im and it essentially does the same thing all these link redirect tracking softwares do with the retargeting, adding CTA etc.

Would me using this be a good alternative and a smart move for example with my Local GMB Pro posts on my local GMB account for my client? I noticed that you used google shortners in some of your posts so curious on your thoughts thanks!

By April

The exact question was:

I am doing some rank and rent w videos stuff at the moment with bill cousins stuff, I was watching one of the webinars and Bradley you were on there. My question is:

What is the best way to utilize tools like syndwire and syndlab (I have both) so I can push the videos that are on the 2nd page or if they are on the first page to cement their spot on page one. I have like 700+ networks inside the tools so I can do lots of blasts but need a range or strategy to not penalize my videos or ruin the rankings.

When blasting what's the safe range to use with the tools to not over do it? (how many backlinks, embeds, status updates, video backlinks etc). I don't want to over do it but I also don't want to under do it. Let me know please, thank you!

As a valued member of the Fiverr community, we ask you to respect the broader Internet community and refrain from such violations in your Gig offerings as this is misleading to our buyers.””

Please help me, sir!

Does Having The City Name In Facebook Different From GMB Listing Cause NAP Inconsistencies?

By April

In episode 192 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked whether having the city name displayed on Facebook different to that on the GMB listing will cause NAP inconsistencies.

The exact question was:

Hi guys, thanks you for all the content you put on the channel for free. It's a great reference.

I got 2 short questions:
1. I have a verified GMB listing and when setting up the Facebook profile, the city name displays differently (FB only allows to pick from a display menu).
Will this cause any NAP inconsistency with my GMB profile (which I prefer not to touch)? Or should I hide the address in FB? By the way, I am displaying the address in GMB and want to keep it that way
