    Hi guys,


    I need some piece of advise. I hope you can help me.


    Here's the case, we've been managing a campaign for a local attorney, and we changed a permalink, which seemed to cause her to fall off the first page of Google Plus top 7 listing. So we reverted it back, and her rankings have bounced back to the first page, but she?s not listed in the top 7 of Google Plus listings ? she shows up under that, in the organic listings.


    We submitted that crawl error, but is there anything we can do to get her listed back on page one within Google Plus?


    Your response is very very much appreciated! :)

    Chrisleads,

    Whenever you change URLs, you have to redirect the old URL to the new one. Otherwise you will loose positioning in SERPs and any links to those pages will break.

    I'm not sure what you mean by top 7 Google plus listing. If you are talking about a places page or a Google plus profile, this would not have been affected by the permalink change. Only URLs on their domain and only the URLs you changed would be affected by that.

    I suppose I would just give it some time and see what happens. If you didn't make any changes to the Google plus account or places account, I'm not sure there is much you can do other than improve upon what you did already.

    Best,

    Shawn
