Local Platform is a SaaS application being developed by Whitespark that’s designed to be a one-stop-shop that makes local SEO easier for everyone.
There are many features on the roadmap, but the first major feature is GBP Management (which is what this page is about). This will allow users to manage their Google Business Profiles from a single streamlined interface and deal with Google updates much more easily and efficiently.
Many new, exciting developments will be coming soon — so stay tuned!
Google regularly updates the information contained in Google Business Profiles based on user reports and other sources, usually without any warning or intervention from profile owners or managers.
These updates can be helpful, like adding new categories that are relevant to your business — but they can also be frustrating, like making undesired or inaccurate changes to your business name, phone number, hours, etc. Oftentimes these updates can even harm your rankings.
It can be challenging to keep on top of all these updates, and the workflow for accepting/rejecting them within Google's interface is slow and tedious. These annoyances compound when you manage multiple Business Profiles.
Our GBP Management tools help streamline the workflow, and keep you in the know about any changes being made to your Business Profiles, while also providing a better interface for managing your business info on Google.
When an update is showing in Local Platform for one of your locations, that means a change has been made to your Google Business Profile, either by Google or by an owner/manager of the profile.
When you accept an update in Local Platform, we will update the location in our system with the change, then push the new value back to your Google Business Profile, thus “accepting” the change from Google. The Google Business Profile and the location in Local Platform will now be in sync until another update is flagged.
When you reject an update, we do not update your Local Platform location. Instead, we push the existing value from Local Platform back to Google, thus overwriting the change Google made, saving you tons of time while also avoiding a potential ranking disaster.
Yes. Each update identifies its source, and you can filter by source to view only updates from one or the other. Pretty slick if we do say so ourselves.
If you’re reading this, it almost certainly is!
Users managing a single Google Business Profile will benefit from update notifications, a superior experience managing updates, and a better overall interface for managing business info.
Users managing multiple Google Business Profiles, like multi-location companies and SEO agencies, will see the same benefits — and will save even more time and hassle for every additional GBP they add.
We intend to keep pricing for Local Platform and GBP Management very affordable so that everyone can use these awesome tools — but we do expect to increase the price a bit as we add more amazing features in the coming months.
If you sign up during our open beta period, you’ll lock in our introductory pricing for at least the next 12 months, and we’ll let you know of any pricing changes after that well in advance!
Unfortunately, we do not currently support the lodging business type. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
