Google Business Profile Manager Bug Hiding Listings & More

Google Business Profiles Managers Controls In Web Search

There are a number of complaints in the Local Search Forums with the Google Business Profile Manager. Supposedly in some cases, listing and other details are being hidden or just disappearing.

Supposedly this is happening anytime a new verification or re-verification is triggered on a profile. When that is done, the profile becomes invisible from within Google Business Profile Manager. Sara Garrison added in the thread “We’ve noticed this bug for a couple of weeks now – it affects newly added profiles. So far we’ve only noticed it when we’ve manually claimed an existing profile into a client’s bulk verified account. Adds via file upload seem to work ok. Not sure if this problem is happening via API – we haven’t seen any evidence of that yet but I suppose it’s possible we haven’t noticed since those run automatically.”

There is a lot more discussion around this issue in the forum, but so far, we have not heard from Google on this issue.

Google Showing Fewer Review Rich Results In Shopping Category

Google Showing Fewer Review Rich Results In Shopping Category

Google may be showing fewer reviews in the search result snippets, fewer review rich results, specifically when you filter by the shopping vertical. This seemed to happen right when Google released the Google Product Reviews update, there was a five percentage point drop in the number of review snippets for this category.

Aleyda Solis noticed this and posted on Twitter that when you filter the Semrush Sensor chart in the Shopping category and then dig into review stars, you will see the drop from about 69% of results having review stars to only 62%. Here is the chart:

Here is Aleyda’s tweet:

Super interesting and yes, the product reviews update can result in rich results not showing up, so it does make sense that this directly impacted that category. But I am surprised the results that replaced those sites do not have review rich results to replace them. Something seems out of whack.

The other tools do not let you filter by vertical and SERP feature. Did you notice this?
