Our company has employed Yext to fix business listings across the web. We've discovered that a significant portion of the links on our business listings have bizarre code added to them that we did not sanction.
For example, our URL is:
but Yext has added a few things to that, such as:
and the others have much more, such as:
Or another one has:
And another has:
(And no, we do not have a "special offer" on that website that we know of)
what does this extra code specifically do?
Why is it different for each site, since Yext is in full control, and these sites will not let us edit our own business info?
and will it allow Yext to remove our URLs from corrected listings if we unsubscribe from their service in the future?
Can or does this affect our own webpage analytics, Google Analytics, or other tools we need as a business to track our traffic and customer interactions?
