Hi we either:
1. Need someone who can teach me how to set up Google Places profiles with positive SEO results.
2. Or someone who will do the job from now on and in the future + of course solve the problems that I got with the current attempts on setting them up.
We are a small webagency. Our salesmen has started selling the service of setting up "Google Places" profiles and even guarantee the client to be among top 5 when people search for for example "hairdresser" in the local area - The salesguys claim that all our competitors can do that.
The job initially landed on my desk, and I tried to set up 9 Google Places profiles, but after 2 months only TWO profiles are live!? and the problems are:
1. "This profile is marked as a copy of another profile" - And the client got no idea what we are talking about the client never signed up himself. How do we solve this?
2. "The ownership of this company has already been confirmed by another user" - Again when talking to the client, he got no idea what we are talking about, he only talked to us about Google Places... So how do we get the ownership back?? We got the code and everything. It's really weird.
3. An orange label saying that google is verifying it - I guess it's because their address has changed from one street to another street. However we have been waiting 4 weeks to get this verified, and Google could just either call the company or look at their website. - Again, how do we solve this??
4. The competitors guarantee a top 5 position, I managed to get one profile from position #8 to #7. Again, what am I doing wrong? according to our salesmen, competitors guarantee a top 5 ranking. Can you do that too??
5. Another problem is that the postcards from Google don't arrive to the client, until I reorder them a second time!? Is there a work around so that the postcard are sent directly to us (or you?)
Right now, I'm looking for someone to solve the problems with the current urgent profiles. But we might also let you take care of the job in the future if you know what you are doing, and know how to solve problems like the ones above.
I can send you all login data or whatever you need, we just really need these Google Places profiles up running.
Remark: Do we need to create Google Plus profiles to give SEO impact??
