Am I required to renew Data Aggregators/Networks each year?
Whilst it's not compulsory to do so, we do advise renewing Data Aggregators/Networks each year. If you choose not to, they go into an 'unmanaged' state, which means they could be susceptible to inaccurate data about your company being distributed throughout their networks.
Having multiple listings with different data can confuse search engines, hurt local rankings and reduce trust that consumers have for your business.
Yext's automated API solution does not identify or fix duplicate listings, and can also miss inaccuracies. For this reason we strongly recommend adding Duplicate Removal to permanently fix any outstanding issues.
