Although he was not given any specific information about how to do it, he thought he would try again for the 30th time.
Kenny Hodges of Scott Snyder Dump Truck Service emailed me this fresh intel, and explained how to do it: Phil – Due to what is most likely a lawsuit in the works, Yext has now added the option for us to just fix our Yahoo listings for free.
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’.
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.
You DO need to make a Yext Power Listings account, AND verify that account through email, and agree to the terms.
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.
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.
You’d only pay to correct your Yahoo listing if your NAP OCD caused you to lie awake at night, bug-eyed and sweating into your pillow. Because it’s near-impossible to find, clearly it’s there by design, rather than as a loophole that’s just asking to be glued shut.
