In Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts episode 244, one viewer asked if it is difficult to rank a GMB listing organically if you don't set up a related listing.
The exact question was:
Hi Guys, . . . Thanks again for helping us customers, your generosity is GREATLY appreciated (smile) . . . . Last week someone asked a question about whether or not it was more difficult to rank a new site for a local business niche and location if you didn't want to set up a related GMB listing, but your answer was about local organic rankings in general and did not address the GMB question (smile) . . Could you please comment on whether it's more difficult, or the same difficulty, to organically rank a new site locally without setting up a related GMB listing?
