In episode 275 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked why Google updates GMB info without giving notice.
The exact question was:
Hello , please help if you have time. I use to do building work in Uk . I had GMB listing with the name of my building services company and i was ranking no1 in local maps for keywords “” builder + location”” However i am not doing building work anymore and i have changed my profile from builder to electrician ,so 6 months ago i changed my GMB name to the new electrician business name. Now ,after 6 months if i type in “” electrician + location “” i am number 12 in google pack and if i type in “”builder+ location”” i still rank high in first positions in local 3 pack. Please explain . Thank you . ( i have new electrician website linked with my gmb listing so it is nothing to do with the old website). Is this about that i have secured place for some keywords ? How it is work then ? From time to time google is doing some changes to my listing and changing back my electrician name to the builder name . Very annoing so i have to change it back to electrician and try to rank for electrician keyword. I am sure you know what is the trick . It is like the gmb ppsition is secured under this builder+location keyword and wond go down .
