Setting Up and Optimizing Google Places After May 30, 2012

What Changes After the Google Plus Local Business Pages Update?  

Setting Up and Optimizing Your Listing on Google Places or Plus

  1. If you are setting up your first location and a brand new business or you are finally claiming a business that is already showing on Google Places, proceed if nothing had changed.  You will go to your Google Account if you have one or set one up if you don't.  You can click on Places and set up your business listing.  Or you can go to  Don't bother with videos or posting any news.  These are not operating at this time. 
  2. If you already have a listing, you will still find your analytics and set up page in the same place.  You can make changes, but not much is really working at this time.  So pictures, videos, details are not having any effect.  I think pictures will come back first.
  3. If you have a listing and need to add a new location or another store, the same thing applies.  No real change.  Log in and add a location.
This part of Google is likely to be very fluid.  So you may want to subscribe to this blog for updates.
