    Most Requested Google+ Local Improvements/Features - Poll Results Are In

    BrightLocal just started a brilliant poll. Sure wish I had thought of it!


    UPDATE 2/28 RESULTS ARE IN - SEE POST #4 BELOW


    Here is the email I just got from Myles and team...

    Vote now for your favourite features!

    Google has made some great improvements to Google Places/+Local in the last 12 months. However many of the grumbles & criticisms remain, and a few new ones have started up.

    New Features & Enhancements

    We've put together a wish list of great new features & enhancements that we'd love to see Google make.

    But we're just 1 voice in a chorus of many and we'd love
    to know which features you'd like to see Google deliver on; is it...

    Live chat support...?
    Email verification...?
    Reports showing duplicate listings...?
    Insights that go further back than 90 days...?
    Real-time alerts on dashboard edits...?

    Once everyone has voted, we'll publish the findings and hopefully the Places product team will swing by, have a look and hopefully take on board the changes that the majority vote for.

    So don't delay, it's time to have your say.

    See the great list of requested features and VOTE HERE!


    There are really some GREAT suggestions. Really good ones I hope that Google listens to and implements.

    There should really be an "other" option so folks can add additional features that Myles and gang didn't think of.

    One for instance I hear a lot, that is not on the list, is alerts for new Google reviews as they come in.

    I voted!

    Though I do wonder why we couldn't add our own actual suggestions and only got to vote for their predetermined suggestions.

    How about the ability to leave Google reviews via a mobile device? Would make review generation a whole lot easier.

    And the results are in!

    Top New features which SEOs & SMBs want on Google PlacesBrightLocal

    Key Findings:

    The most in demand feature is a duplicate listing report & solution to merge/remove (9.6/10).

    Very few people require the bulk upload of more than 100 locations at once (3.8), or the ability to hide posts (6.6).

    There is little demand for account support that’s good enough to pay for – 6.9 / 10.

    Clear gulf between the ‘desired’ features and the ‘likely’ features.
    Above is just a tiny part of the results. Please click over to read the rest.
