We're always looking for ways to help you improve the information and content that appears online about your locations — from correcting inaccuracies in your data, which confuse customers, to powering real-time updates for enhanced content like photos and special offers. Today, we're introducing a new way to optimise your location data with Publisher Suggestions.
Publishers in the PowerListings Network — like Google, Apple, Facebook and Bing — occasionally receive submissions from users with suggested data and content updates for specific locations. With Publisher Suggestions, you can now view those suggestions directly in the Yext dashboard and choose whether or not to incorporate them across your listings.
"Our direct publisher integrations give you maximum control and mean your data and content is never overwritten," said Jon Kennell, Yext VP Product. "Publisher Suggestions helps to make sure that the information businesses store and share in Yext is the most accurate, up-to-date and complete."
Starting today, Yext customers using Google will see Publisher Suggestions for their Google listings in a new tab under PowerListings. Simply approve the suggestion to see it appear across all your listings. Or reject it. And rest assured that you're always in control of your location data.
Yext Partner, Scott Robbins, Owner of WSI Design & Digital Marketing, has been using Publisher Suggestions to optimise his clients' information and content.
"As a digital marketing company, it's critical that our small business clients have consistent and complete online business listings," said Robbins. "The Publisher Suggestions tool allows us to achieve this goal by making sure that the information and content we publish is fully optimised. The Yext interface makes this a flawless process."
Yext Partners and Enterprise customers can turn on notifications in Account Settings to be alerted to each new Publisher Suggestion. Small business customers who use Google will receive alerts any time there is a new Publisher Suggestion, starting from today.
