    New Places Search with Images & Stars - Is it Coming???

    Reviews really stand out with this new Look. Many of my clients are hesitant to ask their clients for reviews and usually end up with zero reviews. Perhaps this will provide additional incentive.

    Searching just the keyword vs searching keyword with city

    How do search results differ when someone searches just the keyword. For example a person located in Cincinnati searches Divorce attorney instead of searching divorce attorney Cincinnati? Are people more likely to search just Divorce Attorney?

    So I should click delete in the places dashboard and then choose the option below? Remove this listing from my Google Places account. Select this option if you mistakenly associated the listing with your account. This listing may continue to display on Google Maps if provided by other sources.
