Google Places Business Listing - Put A News Flash on Your Google Places Business Listing

Google Places Business Listings should start pulling way ahead of the other Local Search Engines real soon.  They just have so many ideas that are so clever, useful, and inexpensive.  This one could be called the Twitter of local search.

Since you, as a marketer or business owner should be checking your Google Places Analytics daily or at least weekly to see trends and make revisions in your strategy for both Google Places and your other online advertising, you can quickly put up a news piece right as shown below.  And since Google seems like they forgot how to name things after they created the great name Google, I'll name this for them.  Google Places News Flash.  Note the box under the "Post to your place page."  I created a post for this client.  All you do when you want to change it is do a new one in that box.

Here is where your Google Places News Flash appears.  Note how I also used the location to create another link to the website.
