For some small businesses Google Local
is all the marketing they do, unfortunately the state of the union at Google Local is in turmoil you have Places,and plus and maps all Google and you have reputation which are reviews also Google and finally you are asked to create or optimize your listing but which one do you optimize?
Do you move your places to plus or vice versa Google doesn't seem to have an answer or they just aren't saying yet.Another problem to add to the mix is the Google reviews process is being turned upside down with reviews going away and reviews not be posted or staying posted,crazy but that's the stated of affairs Now...
