Claiming Google Places Listing

December 15th, 2011 by jkardell Leave a reply »

Although businesses have been able to claim their Google Places Listings since 2005, the number of businesses claiming them since April of 2010 is tremendous. Over 1 1/2 years ago, only 4 million listings had been claimed. Last March the number jumped to 6 million, and now just nine months later the number has jumped to 8 million. According to Google, that is 16% of all the business locations throughout the world.

A Google Places listing doesn’t just include your address, phone number and a link to your website. You can describe your services and products and upload logos, pictures and videos. Customers also have the ability to write reviews, which can greatly help with your rankings.

    It’s the best thing since bread. I tell every business owner I meet about and it’s benfits.It’s easy to do
    Getting it done professionally is the best. It’s like a full page ad in the telephone book of 10 years ago.
