New Changes to Local Search...
One thing you can count on Google for is
Recently over 80 million Google+ Local Pages were
created from existing Places Pages, but this is not the only change in local
search. A new tab has been added within Google+ named “Local” which will
help to combine social networking and local search. To make local business
listings more social, Zagat Reviews have been implemented as well. According
to Google this change will allow for better review ratings since the Zagat
scale is much more dynamic than the usual 5 star review. (Zagat has 0-30
merge? It appears as if it's part of Google's effort to compete with
Facebook and make Google+ more relevant, and also part of their effort to
make their local business more social in general. "Learn about local
businesses from people you know and trust" is the mantra, and integrating
Google Places with Google Plus is a good way to help people do that. Google
is also trying to make everything as seamless as possible across all Google
products -- search, maps, mobile, social, etc. - so the move makes sense
from that point of view.

How Datastream can help You Dominate..."
+ Local Place Page Management Program!
First if your place page hasn't been claimed we will claim it for
you, not claiming your Google page is like
standing on the sidewalk staring into the big glass window of your business
without being able to go in.
Second - Google loves data- Fresh Content , as a matter of
fact they actually require it. And the more data,
media information we provide the more your place page will be rewarded with
the end results of Google giving you
Exposure on relevant searches in your industry. We will create content and
update your page frequently, this content will be accurate and relevant to
your Google Place Page visitor. Just as important, we will make sure your
Place Page is complete and geo-targeted so that it will have the highest
success of being found.
Third - Google has made available over 49 million Place Pages but
only 7% have actually been claimed (up from
4% in December). Of that 7 percent, a very small portion of businesses
actually edit, update or mange them after the second month. By month three,
the information initially added is the same data that appears today. This
instantly lowers their Organic rankings as Google prefers "Fluid" Sites -
those that are relevant and updated frequently.
Fourth - Original Content Pictures, Informational Videos - Every month we
will create a new "Traffic Magnet"
Video's for your place page upload new and relevant industry pictures and
keep your place Page fresh for your visitors, Creating Coupons and special
offers to attract new business into your sales funnel.
Fifth - We help you with
a comprehensive plan to acquire Awesome Testimonials from your Clients and
Customers - This will be "the" KEY FACTOR IN
YOUR FIRST PAGE RANKINGS!
As with Google Place Pages, The New Google+ Local merge and the social dynamic land of organic rankings will be
forever altered and reward those who are more attentive and relevant. As
such, maintaining a Google Place Page has become a perpetual line item on
the business agenda and in our OPINION A MUST! by William Smith
