Major Announcement from Google
Google introduces Google+ Local Pages which will replace Google Places pages.

This is a major announcement from Google that takes Google Places to the next level. As of May 30 Google began switching over millions of Google Place pages to the new Google+ Local Page. Here are a few highlights of the overall change:

Site is Indexed - Unlike Google Place pages, the new Google+ Local pages will be indexed by search engines. This means it will show up in search results, and become a key online asset for your business. It's more important than ever to drive people to your new Google+ Local page to write positive reviews.
Includes Zygat reviews - A little while ago Google bought the review site Zagat. Now Google+ Local pages will feature the integration and free availability of Zagat reviews (its entire archive across categories).
Easier to Find - Users will be able to discover the new Google+ Local pages in several ways: through a search on Google.com, on Google Maps, in mobile apps, or through a search on Google+.

Originally Google had hoped to make Places into interactive content pages that businesses would use to regularly communicate with customers and prospects. However that didn't happen for a variety of reasons. With the new Google+ Local pages Google has achieved a much more versatile and "social" platform that gives Google a local vehicle with functionality similar to Facebook and Twitter.

It appears Google is using the same url address from your Places page for your Google+ Local page. If you have a link on your website to your Google Places page, then it has probably already changed to a Google+ Local page. If not, it will probably be changing very soon. Since the links are the same you won't need to update the link on your website.

To learn more, please join us this Wednesday, June 6 for a webinar about Social Media where we will cover this topic and more.
