My guest is today is Ben Fisher, co-founder of Steady Demand. He’s a contributor at Bright Local, Search Engine Land, and Moz’s annual Local Search Ranking Factors study. He speaks all over the world on topics related to Local SEO and Social Media Marketing.

He’s been in the industry since 1994 and he’s probably forgotten more about SEO than most of us will learn in a lifetime.

Ben is a Google My Business Platinum Expert. If you don’t know what that means, stay tuned because I’m going to ask him.

The episode was filmed during the COVID shelter in place policies, so it’s a bit different than our typical Suds & Search Episodes.

Ben joined me on Zoom to talk about map spam, how to get a suspended listing reinstated, and new products and features coming from Google My Business.
