Yahoo page not updating
Their service is not free, but the amount of time you will save is huge.
It appears that you can – once again – update your Yahoo Local listing for free, without having to sign up for Yext Power Listings.
Yahoo completely turned over listings-management duties to Yext last year.
Over the course of several years, Yahoo had gone from a viable (if second-fiddle) local search engine, to a broken one, to one that no longer even tried to offer correct or new results.
Yext Power Listings claims that even though it’s a free account, you will be in full control of your claimed Yahoo Business page. The results on the right are what you’re looking for. Click on “verify your listing,” right under the name of your business, where it asks “is this your business? Yahoo/Yext Power Listings will open, where it will send you to a “free business listing scan.” 5.
Prior to claiming your business you will need to find the proper Yahoo business categories through another source as there is no dropdown or multiple choice or suggestions. What you need to do is go through the entire process as if your are purchasing one of their plans.
This is interesting information that came about from a sales call from Yext.
My uncle received a sales call from Yext and he proceeded to berate them about the fact that they were ‘holding his business listings hostage’.
Everything was going fairly well until I started to move my extensions over from Firefox 3.6 profile.
After 15 mins on the phone with the sales person, he was told that there IS a way to fix his business listings for free.
Although he was not given any specific information about how to do it, he thought he would try again for the 30th time.
Nyagoslav tells me that Yahoo requires phone-verification before your edits go live. Have you tried the free-fix on your Yahoo listing yet?
I’m guessing there’s a email that prompts you to verify, but I haven’t confirmed that yet. Now when you finally get to the pricing schedule, you will find a new link, which is the solution to the Yext stranglehold on Yahoo business listings.
