    It's too bad they don't parse the ratings and display them in the "Reviews from around the web" section.

    Thanks David!

    And that's just less than 3 hours post launch. Sure glad I thought to ask my host to increase my bandwidth last night.

    There is still LOTS to come, I have not even had time to post yet and many are just starting to hear the news.

    Thanks so much for helping me hold down the fort today!

    I never found Insights data to be inaccurate, just very limited.

    The one GRRR... I have about this update is that...

    Obviously I'm going to have to rebrand my site and forum everywhere it says G+ L or Google Places.

    Worse yet, I need to tear apart my training and start over. So much has changed since I created the Oct training. So need to redo it all which is a one+ month long project, as busy as I am these days!

    I don't think so Linda. Google My Business is just the name for the dashboard. Google+ Local is still this:
    https://plus.google.com/u/0/local/ and will probably always will be.

    Sharing other blog posts and news stories as I find them!

    See: Related Posts Bottom of the 1st post.

    But I'm seriously running around like crazy answering Qs everywhere so have not even had time to check my RSS feed yet. I'll add more after I get caught up.
