    After a quick scan, it looks like there's nothing really new, just better organization.

    It's always exciting to see some forward motion on Google's local product, especially after the sorry state of affairs it's been in for the past couple of years. Hopefully this means there will be regular updates and a renewed push.

    Also, the preview feature is money.

    Nothing NEW???

    Check all the features in my top post, then look at your dashboard more closely.

    Yes the interface is fairly familiar which is good news - but there is a TON new.

    Like usual with Google things are often pretty subtle!

    Linda, you are so cute when you get excited

    Love the new dash. Very clean and easy to navigate. Kind of bummed however that "Top Searches" is gone.

    I have a question: can we trust the data in Insights now?

    I'm excited? You can tell???

    I've been trying to hold back on this for over 2 months and have been playing with it for 6 days. I've been bursting at the seams!!!

    Really proud of all the work the My Business team put into pulling this launch off.

    I think over 100 people were involved. Can you imagine just trying to re-write all the help docs? Not just re-branding, but the update features and everything? Huge job!

    Ha Darren - Insights are probably what the name implies.
    Just insights - likely still won't reveal the whole picture.

    Kyle Giesbrecht asked on G+
    "I have one question, you mention in your post the ability to preview your listing to see how it looks in search, maps, etc, but for the life of me I can't find that option."

    It's at bottom right of edit business details section. Thanks for asking. Meant to post - ran out of time.

    Delete listing and VIEW ON GOOGLE screen shot
