Google Places is essentially a local business listing service that Google provides. It can be a great way to get some exposure, especially if you have a local focus. You create a listing for your business which you would have to verify that you own. They’ll send you a post card or call the phone number on record for verification.Once this is done you can create a robust company page with images, hours of operation and a lot of unique information about who you are, what you do and why they should stop by if that applies.You’ve probably noticed when you’ve searched for something on Google that about mid-way through the page there are a bunch of map listings with little pins. Those are Google Places entries and this is a great way to get your business in there. Without having to go through all the effort of fighting and scrabbling for those top positions you’re getting a first page listing through Google Places. It really boosts the Search Engine Optimization for your business so we highly recommend it. If you have any questions about Google Places please give us a call!
