This from the Internet God Itself:
Discover great places through reviews and photos from people in your Circles. Just add your friends, family and experts you trust to get great local recommendations in Search, Maps and Google+
Make smart decisions with Zagat’s summaries of user reviews and its expressive scoring system that helps you make a decision based on Food, Service, Decor and Price.
Love the food but hate the service? Love the chicken but hate the pasta? Google+ Local makes it easy to share your opinions and photos as expressively as you can in real life.
We are but mere mortals. We are but pawns in the ever expanding universe and world that is Google.
I have a mortuary as a client and they are most definitely interested in reviews and social media. Not as much as restaurants maybe but they want some positive talk going on about them.
The thing is, businesses like this do not typically have a lot of reviews, so the few that do will stand out.
Use Google Plus? If you’re a business owner that wants some control on how your company appears on the most popular online map in the world, Google Maps, it’s now basically a requirement.
That’s because Google on Wednesday announced Google+ Local, the company’s latest effort to push its Google Plus social network onto the screens of Web users.
In one fell swoop, Google converted all of its previous online location listings for milions of businesses, called Google Places, into Google Plus Local pages. Google communicated this change to business owners through a post on its “Google and Your Business Blog”.
