    Upon further inspection it appears that you don't have to be logged into the account that the listing is in. It looks like this is a feature for users....

    Wild! Yup a new crowd sourced user edit dealybob!

    I just searched a random listing I have no relationship with and see it at the bottom.

    Hmmm, it says private. Wonder if owner can see and wonder if the algo can see?
    Or just for the user to make their own notes about places OR???

    Good score Colan!!! Thanks for sharing!

    Private Contact Details On Google+ Local Pages

    Hey all,

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful week thus far. Just wanted to stop in and share with everyone what we believe is a recent update to the Google+ Local page. I apologize if this is old news.

    Earlier today a colleague of mine, Kerry Fager, had discovered that Google is now encouraging users to "Add your own private contact details about "BUSINESS"' on Google+ Local pages. Please reference the attached image below:

    Name:  local-page.png

Size:  166.9 KB

    Once a user clicks on this, the following form will appear:

    Name:  local-page-form.jpg
Views: 348
Size:  17.3 KB

    What is everyone's thought on this? Just thought we'd share. As always, everyone's input and feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Re: New Feature? Add Your Own Private Contact Details

    Thanks so much Matt, merged your thread into this one, because Colan posted about it this AM.

    Must be brand new because you both discovered today and I've not seen anyone else talk about it. Colan is going to test and I'd like to try a couple things if I get time but am a little jammed up on a consulting project.

    Everyone share if you experiment or find anything new.

    Thanks so much for posting Matt!

    Re: New Feature? Add Your Own Private Contact Details

    OK just did a real quickie. Posted to my own G+ Local page from my other Google account.

    NOTE: The info appears to only be available to the person posting. When I look at my listing from the account the G+L page is in I can't see anything.

    Here is screen shot:

    Re: New Feature? Add Your Own Private Contact Details

    I haven't actually claimed my +Local page ever since God Google shut down the one I had claimed, then put all my reviews on an unclaimed page attributed to us even though we didn't actually have an address in the city where they put us (purely based on the phone exchange). So I have been stalking this +Local page and doing user edits on the hours, categories, a picture and map marker location. So now at least I have an accurate but unclaimed page that does not mask the address even though we are a service area business, but a half dozen of about 25 reviews are displaying so I am leaving it be for now.

    No Private Contact Details offer on this page, I suppose because it's not claimed. I guess it's time to claim it and see if I can get Godgle to take away my reviews by playing by Its rules. {grin - I like that - "Godgle"} I'll let you know when I do.

    Re: New Feature? Add Your Own Private Contact Details

    Oh yes, just seeing this now. Colan beat me to the punch. Good find, Colan and thanks for sharing your insight!

    We will test this as well. Some initial thoughts here were that it could possibly be used from a Google+ user's perspective where there could be a feature that would save 'Contacts' under their profile? Not entirely sure, but I'm assuming we'll all find out sooner or later.

    Thanks again Linda and Colan!

    -Matt
