If not, registering now will get you access to all the new goodies we have in shop for you.
With any significant change to a tool you utilize, it can take a bit for you to change. That’s why I desired to compose up a peek at a few of the highlights of the product, and from there encourage you to dig into our additional resources
What are some crucial functions to dig into?

Automated duplicate removal
Replicate listings of a business area can turn profile management into a tangle, mislead customers, dilute ranking strength, and in some cases even violate platform guidelines. However historically, detection and resolution of duplicates has been troublesome and all but difficult to scale when dealt with manually.

Our next-level algorithmic innovation will identify, confirm and permanently delete your replicate listings in a completely automated style that requires no interaction or involvement on your part. This is a significant advancement that will save regional brands and companies a fantastic amount of time.

Logging in and out of numerous dashboards can be such a trouble, however with Moz Local, you’ll have insights about all of your places and clients in a single space. Moz Resident is now talked to Facebook management (hooray!) and we’ve deepened our Google My Company integration.
We’ll capture Facebook insights information for impressions and clicks for your place’s published Facebook material.
