Is your business listed in Google Places? If not it should be!

When customers search on Google they not only get the regular paid and organic listings of websites but will often see a local map with businesses listed that are relevant to the search term used. Claiming and updating your Google Places account allows you to upload photos, videos, and coupons for potential customers to see.  Lately we are seeing that our searches are now also showing images from the business next to the map listings.  These images are drawn from the Google Places listing and have been uploaded by the websites owner. When someone visits your Google Local page they can also see a map of your location, reviews, hours and more.

We recommend you visit your Google Local page often to be sure the information is correct and up to date.  Watch for Google Hotspot,  an extension of Google Places that will be coming out soon.
