    Hi Luc, I would like to know something about GMB, I register all my clients to GMB with my personal Google account and I often give them their first "5 star review", Is it a good thing to do? Should they register themself?

    I'm a level 8 local guide, Does my review weighs more than others?

    Thank you, I really like your youtube channel 🙂

    Making the business name part of the topic is not going to be used by google forever, especially as scammers use this to push businesses up the chain, next year Google may decide to use some other feature, so not sure that is good advice for the long run. Just look at how many times Google has already dumped what used to be their number one indicator.

    Hello Luc, hope you are doing great. Just stopping by for a quick question on Instagram:

    Viewing the insights of one of my organic posted videos (5 Sec length), I noticed the following results:

    – Views: 311 (Which is displayed just below the post)

    – Reach: 823 (Seen in the insight tab)

    The Question:

    1) What is the difference – in this specific case – between these above two metrics? (I know that Reach indicates 1 unique user)

    2) To be counted as 1 View, does it necessarily mean that the viewer must take any action, or watch for a certain duration of time knowing that my video is already very short in length & plays automatically in the news feed?

    Thanks a lot 🙂

    So if I am searching for a landscaper in my town I will get the first three closest to my home? I have been trying to make sense of all of this. I was looking the other day and saw that 2 out of the top 3 on a recent search was showing me people who weren't even verified, no website, reviews , etc. Yet, below them there were those verified with websites, etc. I couldn't comprehend this. This is the only thing that makes sense now. Well, that and the other factors you mention that I am not entirely sure how to figure out. For one thing, I have tried to research citations of these companies on Moz and even that doesn't match up to them being in the top 3. I was hoping to offer this (claiming their GMB listing and optimizing it) and would like to know how to tell them, yes, I can get you in top 3 and yet be sure I actually can.
