In episode 180 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm259AszLMA), one viewer asked if it still important to have a claimed and verified GMB listing and multiple local directory listings if you just want to rank in local SERPs but not in the 3-Pack
The exact question was:
Thank you VERY much again for the help you provide, your generosity will be rewarded tenfold 🙂
Can you please help with the following 🙂
