- Most GMB Listings (Restaurant-Specific) are owned and managed by 3rd party companies.
- Most Restaurant Owners Do Not Understand what "GMB Listing" is.
- Finally, when a Restaurant owner wants to get their listing claimed - it is nearly impossible to do.
- They end up trying for weeks, months, and then simply give up.
There needs to be a solution to this quick, it really is a joke at what's going on. In our market there are now at least a dozen companies, all vying for the Google My Business listing.
-> GOOGLE VISITORS ARE HURT
Various companies charge hidden mark-ups, delivery charges, collect cc data, etc...
-> SMALL BUSINESS ARE HURT
Their entire business sites now revolve around "ORDER NOW, WE DELIVER",
No More "Come in and Eat"
-> 3RD PARTY COMPANIES ARE HURT
They create a a Reliance on "Google My Business" to bring in traffic
Virtually NOBODY WINS OR GAINS anything in the current scenario. I do not have a proposition to change it except to STOP DISPLAYING GOOGLE MY BUSINESS in Search Engine Results.
