Google Places Becomes Google+ LocalConsult Local
In a continued effort to become more social, Google has converted millions of Google Places pages for business into Google+ Local pages which is an extension of their Google+ platform.
It is a bold move and one that we think will pay off. Anyone that has been working with Google Places for some time will know that it left a lot to be desired and the help forum was cluttered with requests after requests for help. It often felt like you were working in a beta program with many limitations.
Among the changes, Google+ Local features a much improved review system. Watch the video below to see how it works.
