    New Practice - Google+ Business Listing or Google Places

    Our client took over a practice from another doctor a couple of years ago, but hasn't created any local accounts for herself. There is an old auto-generated Google Places page for the old doctor that doesn't rank at all.

    My question was whether to create a Google+ Business page with a Local category, or to use the old Google Places method for right now. Are Google+ Business page's ranking well?

    Thanks!
    Tom

    Re: New Practice - Google+ Business Listing or Google Places

    Hey Tom,

    You want to set it up in the Places dashboard. You'll get the new improved dash since it's a new listing.

    And you need to mark the other Dentist listing as closed.

    Don't create a G+ Business page at all right now. G is auto-updating all Place pages to G+ and says to wait until they do the upgrade for you. Here's the info if you weren't aware:
    Google Begins Auto-Upgrade of G+ Local Listings to Google+ Business Pages

    (All this is explained in greater detail in the new training program we talked about today.)

    Thanks - I had a feeling that was the case, but I haven't been doing much in the area so I wanted to double check.
