Google Places now linked with Google +

by: Adam

Another cog in the wheel at Google + as they showcase that they are building all the tools at Google together slowly. It started with separate systems, and now they are starting to link and connect. The importance of the Google + is slowly coming together and soon it could be bringing more value to the Social Media world.

Google announced that Google + and Google Places (maps with your business) are now connected and to setup/manage your business you will now do it through your Google + account. The same Google + that will allow you to connect your friends and work associates together. How natural and perfect is this connection and the future of how Google + value grows from here. Maps, reviews and better SEO all linked with your social media connections, just simply brillant. Makes sense to me.

This is very interesting for the future of getting your business noticed and found online. This also brings a bit more value for those looking to be found for business vs Facebook. I have yet to find the Facebook “Map”, but I can tell you that the BING maps works for setting up your business, but you can’t do anything yet in Canada. I’ve set it up for the Niagara Falls, NY office. It’s very cool with lots of features…to be talked about in another post.

Looking to get your Google+ account or your define your “places” this is the time that you can do it.
