Google+ Local Set to be the New Face of Google Places for Business

 Local business owners encouraged to create Google+ pages to utilize Google+ Local

Though Google has not totally shut down Google Places yet, lots of reports and blog posts all over the web already announced what the search giant is currently doing. A blog post by Greg Sterling from Search Engine Land reports the end of Google Places.

Google Places pages have been entirely replaced by new Google+ Local pages. As of this morning roughly 80 million Google Place pages worldwide have been automatically converted into 80 million Google+ Local pages, according to Google's Marissa Mayer. It's a dramatic change (for the better) though it will undoubtedly disorient some users and business owners.

Google+ Local, according to the search giant helps improve how people discover and share local businesses inside Google+. Below is an excerpt from Google's blog post.

With the release of Google+ Local, rolling out today, we are bringing the community of Google+ to local business owners around the world. We aim to improve the way people discover new businesses, rediscover places they love, and share them with their friends across the web.

More Socialized Pages for Local Business
With the launching of Google+ Local, the search giant is hoping to attract more business owners to create their own pages inside Google+ and encourage more interactions from the social network's (not so active) community.

With these updates, we're connecting the millions of people on Google+ to local businesses around the world. With one listing, your business can now be found across Google search, maps, mobile and Google+, and your customers can easily recommend your business to their friends, or tell the world about it with a review.

Zagat reviews are also featured on the local pages to provide potential consumers or clients better preview about the business.

For years, Zagat has provided trustworthy, concise, user-generated reviews, and we are excited to bring these to Google+ Local. We've also updated our scoring system to Zagat's time-tested 30-point scale, so that users can better share their view about what makes a place unique.

Google+ Local is the new face of Google Places. A closer look on how it works would definitely remind you of Foursquare and Facebook Places minus the check-ins. But, for sure, sooner or later, Google will definitely add the check-in feature.

Impact of Google+ Local to Business
This newest update from Google would surely encourage more and more business owners to create their business pages in Google+. But, for those entrepreneurs who are not familiar how Google+ works, a little help from Google SEO experts can lessen the hassle and can save them the time in figuring out how the social platform can be used to create more visibility and exposure for their business.

On the other hand, the Local pages can be viewed as the search giant's another business strategy to attract and get more people to join and actively participate in Google+. As Google+ is created to compete with social networking giants like Facebook and Twitter, the search giant doesn't want to lag behind the social networking race.

More Features Will Be Added to Google+
Aside from the Local pages, online marketing experts and bloggers predict that there are more web features that are soon to be integrated onto Google+. Jen Fitzpatrick, Google's VP Engineering, confirmed it through the Google+ Local blog post.

We know many of you have already created a Google+ Page for your business, and have been hosting hangouts and sharing photos, videos and posts. We're excited that we'll soon extend these social experiences to more local Google+ pages in the weeks and months ahead. To give you a sense of what's coming, we've worked with a few business owners to fully upgrade their listings early and share their Google+ business identity across Search, Maps and Mobile.

"Even though it’s a young platform, G+ has decided to cater to businesses only a few months after its launch.

Google+ Pages is a feature that is similar to its Facebook counterpart, and definitely holds a lot of promise with regard to user-friendliness. In fact, this may actually be what G+ can leverage on; creating a G+ page is so easy, you’ll need only a few minutes.

The only thing you’ll need is a Google account and a G+ profile before you can create your Page".

Content Trends: Six things that are important for your Content Strategy | How to use Google+ in your internet marketing + content strategy | Scoop.it
We're nearly halfway through 2012 and there are some clear content trends emerging... The trend to embrace content marketing as a discipline in itself continues apace. But this is primarily an editorial endeavour. And great editorial depends on an ongoing flow of high-quality ideas. When the ideas run out, it’s all over.

As original ideas can be hard to find (especially for the more complex B2B brands), the ability to brainstorm clever content ideas, formats and executions has become powerful content-marketing currency.

What marketers are after is ‘ideas with legs’, workable series of content that can be replicated week after week without flagging. Content mapped to customer needs and interests that is truly useful, usable and builds long-tail relationships...

Why Every Marketer Now Needs a Google+ Strategy

Why Every Marketer Now Needs a Google+ Strategy | How to use Google+ in your internet marketing + content strategy | Scoop.it

Last week, Google rolled out "Search Plus Your World," an update to Google's universally popular search engine that biases logged-in users to receive socially shared content and markup in the results... Watch the video from SEOMoz and why every marketer needs a Google+ Strategy

From SEOMoz... "Howdy, SEOmoz fans. Welcome to a special edition of Whiteboard+. Today we're actually talking a little bit meta about Google+and Google Search Plus Your World, which is Google's new effort to take their social network, Google+, and involve it more in exceedingly intricate ways with your search results and with everyone's search results.

I want to talk a little bit about what this means and why, in my opinion, every web marketer needs a Google+ strategy for their site, for their content. If you don't, I think you're going to be missing out very, very quickly. I think Google has really forced marketers' hands in this way, businesses in particular that have content on the Web. I'll show you what I mean by this.

So I've got some reasons why I believe this. Number one, Google+ is in the search results like you have never seen before. Let me illustrate for you really briefly with some search results that I've drawn up here. I even made the little icon with my finger. So, when I perform a search, like "Rand Fishkin," and if you are connected to me on Google+, you'll actually see results remarkably similar to this where my Google+ profile outranks all my other content. There was a great rant from someone whom I'm not usually a big fan of because of his denial of the power of SEO, but Jason Calacanis actually had a nice rant on Google+ itself where he noted that his Google+ profile was outranking all the other content - his blog, his Twitter profile.

My wife noticed the same thing for her Everwhereist account for her travel blog, how essentially Google+ had taken over the number one spot for a lot of brand names and personal names, obviously, with the intent of hoping that people will contribute more to Google+, that they'll keep their profiles updated because if you don't, it looks kind of bad.

How to show your picture next to your articles and links in Google search results | How to use Google+ in your internet marketing + content strategy | Scoop.it
This is an excellent post with a YouTube video tutorial showing you exactly how to get your image to appear and be seen next to your search results in Google.

Blog post at slymarketing : Google search is by far my best traffic resource. I don’t want to go into details, but most of my traffic comes from people who are using Google to find my content. And, that’s why I have been focusing on understanding Google in my marketing business and for my blog.

Understanding how Google works is actually not that hard. It’s mostly about quality content and relevant content, and in order to get ranked high, we need votes from people. Votes can be links to our articles, or likes  (votes from people on social media). The more relevant votes we get, the higher we’ll rank on Google. That’s the short version.

There are a few things you can do in order to get even more clicks from Google, and one of them is by adding your picture next to your articles in the search engine results page (SERPs).

Why choose Google Plus as an integral part of your social media marketing strategy?

Well, Google+ should have a primary place in your content marketing strategy for the following reasons:

1. Google+ has a significant effect on Google search. The most important place for you to be found is in search. Why? People using search are in “intention mode.” They have an itch, and they are looking to scratch it. If your product or service is in front of them when they have that itch, they are more likely to use you to scratch it.

2. Google+ allows a variety of content options. You can post text, photos, and videos. You can even record a video post using your webcam right in a G+ share box.

3. Google+ enables you to create content “rich” posts. You can take advantage of G+ post formatting to create posts more likely to get read, clicked, and re-shared.


Since Google+ offers more options in the last category than almost any other social media outlet, let’s focus on how to use that effectively... Full Article

This comprehensive Google+ SEO guide covers every aspect and angle of Google+ and how it impacts search.


Most of the attention is on the integration of Google+ in Google search results. However, internal search on Google+ is a fascinating product and lays the groundwork for search integration.

Google+ search queries return results with a standard selection of facets.

 

Sometimes Google selects these facets for you. Specifically, it will default to People and pages for many queries. These are generally category or head terms like SEO, Photography, Chef, CEO, Gardening etc. But a query for something like ‘banana bread’ will not return a preselected People and pages facet but just provide an Everything feed of content...
