"Simple yet detailed"

What do you like best?

Uses user feedback to give a complete picture of places and businesses. Combines user data with google technology to provide the most insight into any search. allows customers to search simple and complex phrases to find places they are looking for and view photos uploaded by the business themselves, customers, and google road maps. allows you to search for directions instantly to a place and allows you to view vital information such as business hours, phone number, website, busy times, and even allows for direct communication with businesses if they have chosen to set up this feature.

What do you dislike?

hard for businesses to adjust hours or locations, hard for new ownership to take over old business locations. if you purchase a business which was previously located at an old business address the old one will remain regardless of how many attempt to remove the old business from google places you attempt.

Recommendations to others considering the product

your business will not survive without this vital tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ads, clicks, search results, advertisement, social connectivity. ability to effectively communicate with customer bases and potential customer bases general information such as hours of operation, busy times, contact information / phone numbers and direct link to our website as well as a click away from instant directions from location and estimated arrival times. alerts customers who search when business closes soon so they don't overlook and waste a trip. customers trust google places to give them updated and accurate information for having your business listed and a participating aspect of it greatly improves revenue and new customer interactions.

"Google places is a powerful tool that promises to increase the visibility of your business."

What do you like best?

Google place basically works as an information sheet that appears on the google map, where you can add important data such as telephone, hours of service, addresses, etc. and in this way users can know where you are and the products you offer to the market . What I like most is that Google place gives you tools for the creation of a kind of website where you can add all the information you consider relevant and also offers the option to make publications that appear in your Google maps tab, on the other side offers statistical analysis tools to measure the performance of the strategies implemented. In summary, google places is an excellent tool to attract customers effectively and increase your visibility and presence in the market.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I did not like about google places is that the map is not updated and therefore some routes and places do not appear.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend that when you use google places, add real and up-to-date information that helps users and future customers locate the places they need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since we use google places at work we have increased the number of customers and sales, many more people know about us and our products and services.

"Google places is an excellent tool to obtain information about different places."

What do you like best?

This incredible platform works as a local business directory, which allows you to share relevant information about your company, such as location, photos, videos and customer service hours. What I like most about google places is that it is very useful, practical and easy to use because it allows you to access your information at any time to modify it or to obtain information on how many people have seen the file of your company. In addition, it has many free options and features that are really useful to attract new customers. It's really amazing!

What do you dislike?

My experience with google places has been really good, however it has some limitations. The only thing I do not like is that there are many cities and places that do not appear on the map.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They must have a good internet connection when using google places.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since I use google places, the visibility of the company where I work has increased, we have captured new clients and we have also improved our positioning on the web.

"Integrated With Custom WP Plugin"

What do you like best?

Was able to use API to integrate Google Places with a location search function built into a custom wordpress plugin for a client's website. The application was spot on and was perfect for what the client was wanting to get out of the product and into their website's search functionality.

What do you dislike?

It was a little difficult tracking down the right product to integrate and easily understanding where to go for integrating with API.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a shot, it really has very few flaws for what it does.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Places solved our qualm with not being able to bring up local landmarks, etc on a custom map function that we were building in a wordpress plugin.

"A must for any small or local business!"

What do you like best?

It took me less than 10 minutes to set up a google places page for my business. You simply fill in the information about your business you'd like listed and you can also list offers and add photos which is a great bonus. Oh, and it's free, so there's really no loss in taking a few moments to set it up. Personally, if I search for a local business and can not find their hours or phone number quickly, I usually just end up searching for somewhere else. It is an internet age and people want to be able to find what they are looking for FAST, and I truly believe that even for word of mouth businesses like mine, it is very important to have an online presence which builds credibility when prospects are "researching" you.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a faster way to verify your business rather than waiting for a postcard mailing. (However, I started my account a few years ago and there might be a new verification option by now)

Recommendations to others considering the product

i truly believe this is a must have for any small or local business. It's such a simple way to have your business appear when people search for you, OR when they try to do a general search for a business like yours in the area. Add a Google+ page in to really help boost your credibility, visibility, and SEO.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is the best way to have potential clients find you and easily get in touch with you. Having customers review your business improves your SEO, which is important to me because my business runs mainly off of word of mouth and customer reviews and recommendations.

Our location information shows up during searches as well as people navigating and looking for businesses nearby like ours. It has helped our google SEO by consistently updating Google Places.

"Great Place to Review Online Presence"

What do you like best?

I like the overall UI of Places. It does a great job putting together the important factors you need to show your potential clients/buyers. Google has also done a great job of adding new pieces of content that enhances your profile like specials and posts.

What do you dislike?

I feel they can go even further in enhances google places by helping you push your information to other sources so that agencies don't have to go to third parties. I also don't like that they override some information without your consent.
