There is a Glitch in Google My Business

  1. Most GMB Listings (Restaurant-Specific) are owned and managed by 3rd party companies.
  2. Most Restaurant Owners Do Not Understand what "GMB Listing" is.
  3. Finally, when a Restaurant owner wants to get their listing claimed - it is nearly impossible to do.
  4. 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.
