Google Places is not to be confused with the other ways of looking at maps and local business, such as the Yahoo Places listing mechanism or the Google earth listing. Google places is a program strictly designed for Small Businesses to amplify their Google Maps listing, by taking steps to make themselves findable in the search engines. The steps are mainly that a business must select or choose its Google Places times for wanting to be found in the search engines for certain search phrases and executing a strategy. When a business actually claims Google sites listings, which are free they are literally creating a presence on the internet to be found. It is actually more accurate to call it the Google Places directory because Google is literally providing searchers with handy information in their local area. So every business must make sure that they are capturing their share of the local search market. Because people have interest in their Google local listings, it makes sense that having a presence there is vital. But trying to do this has been problematic for Small Business and their consulting marketers (Offline marketers). What Russ Hayes has found with respect to Offline Consulting will definitely surprise you and it is worth your time to listen in. He has a wealth of experience and will also be talking to us about potential solutions. Google Places Listing issues must be mastered by marketers.
