Hello, Is it me or Local SEO got harder than normal SEO? I got some customers listed for over 2 years on maps ranking between third and fourth and after google maps update from 7 pack to 3 pack it seems that they are not listed anymore and there is nowhere to be found which is amazing since they are listed in like 30 local directories which was what Local SEO required before. So, I contact Google support and they say that update was not only about changing 3 pack from 7 pack it was also about Google+ Network to grow too and they tell me that now to be listed on Google Maps is required the following to show on listing not even ranking: 1) On Google+ page put other social media profile like facebook, twitter, etc. 2) Have a lot of pictures about your business on Google+ page a minimum of 15. 3) Have lots of reviews and respond to them minimum of 15. 4) Make Google+ page as important as main website with business info, pictures and constant content posting. Is it me or Local SEO just got ridiculous ? Is all this true? If anyone knows a better way to do this can someone please share because this seems crazy. Is not even worth the work no more. Thanks!
