  5. 5. “<br />Here is a quick run down of what an effective listing entails: <br />Business Location<br />Business Name <br />Location appears to plays a key role in the places algorithm. Follow these guidelines carefully: <br />• Exact street. Consistency is key. <br />• Physical address, not a P.O. Box. <br />• One listing per physical business location – even if you operate in a larger service <br />• Remember, this is about trust and consistency across many different information, zip code you might be tempted to list just the city name. <br />• Multiple business locations? Create listings for each! <br />• Represent your business in the exact <br /> same way that it appears offline. <br />• Save taglines, phone numbers or URL’s<br /> for their appropriate place. Inclusion<br /> here might appear as an attempt to <br /> manipulate results. <br />Website and Phone <br />Categories <br /><ul><li> Your phone number SHOULD be a local number for maximum impact.
  6. 6. Keep in mind that Google Places categories should say what your business IS.</li></ul>Quality Guidelines: http://www.google.com/support/places/bin/answer.py?answer=107528<br />
  7. 7. Advanced Tips – Reviews <br />“<br />Positivereviews are a powerful motivating factor for Google users deciding which business to buy from. First your reviewer must locate your business in Google Maps, click "More info“ and then click "Write a review", then write the review, choose a rating, and click "Save". <br />Important note: They must be logged into their Google Account to write a review. If they're not logged in they'll be prompted to either sign in or create a Google Account. Their Google Account nickname will appear next to the review. <br />Google also pulls reviews in from 3rd party resources – this means those reviews can create incredible exposure for your brand. This can be a double edged sword though and many businesses have experienced problems with inaccurate or unjustified negative reviews. <br />
