So here's an update on my company SEO nightmare - Local.com IS in partnership with Yext, which I already knew was not a company I would ever EVER deal with. I had, of course asked that question when I first interviewed local.com. They lied and said local.com had nothing to do with Yext. Now they are sharing documents and reporting that they are, in fact, partner businesses.
Thanks to Google Alerts, I saw that a YouTube video and a directory listing were made about my client...with the wrong phone number. Upon digging deeper, I learned that YellowBook hires elocalprofiles to create directory listings and videos for clients...using the phone number that YellowBook uses to track (and charge) calls to their customers.
It breaks my heart. It also makes me mad.
