    tagline on Google+ Local page?

    Has anyone seen the ability to add a tagline on a Google+ Local page.

    Personally, I've only seen this on Google+ Personal Profiles and +Brand pages but it is not a field available on Google+ Local pages for all of our clients.

    One of my clients sent this screenshot over that shows a field for tagline. When I sign in to their account, that field is not present. any ideas?

    That is totally new to me? I just checked a couple of clients, both logged in and out, but see nothing like that.

    Are they sure it was a Local page?

    It is definitely a local page. the information on that screenshot matches the live Google+ Local listing exactly.

    I apologize, I dont have permission to share the listing link though

    Interesting. I wonder if it's some sort of glitch. Did they manually upgrade the G+ Business page through the old way via postcard?

    I've seen this before once or twice, but only on mobile.

    Hey Alex,

    I went to your client's page (don't ask me how ), and I don't see any "tagline" on the front-end. Must be a fluke, or one of those Google+ features that's defunct the day it rolls out.

    That is a screenshot from a tablet, correct? Do you know what kind? What app?

    Re: tagline on Google+ Local page?

    @phil, saw your comment and HAD immediately thought "challenge accepted" and sought out the listing too.

    @OP, nothing on my end. Testing? Once upon a time I used to optimize the comment/say something option in Google Places. Course back then I don't think it was even indexed. Oh the good ol days.

    Re: tagline on Google+ Local page?

    Thanks everyone for your responses.

    I'm assuming it is a tablet based on the layout of the dashboard. That screenshot was provided to me so I dont actually have access to the account.

    When I check on an android tablet, I see a layout similar but without the tagline field. I'm trying to get more information about the device, app, etc..

    If I get more information, I will be sure to share it.

    Re: tagline on Google+ Local page?

    As Keenan has mentioned, if they don't add anything to the tagline field, that tagline field will not appear for the rest of us. However, I would be curious to know if your client adds a tagline, if it will appear for the rest of us. Would the edit be "pending" or would it go live right away?

    I find it interesting that some of the "cards" in that layout have pencil icons for editing, but others don't. However, knowing that you can't always do everything from a mobile device, that you can do from a desktop, it is not surprising that every area might not have an "edit" option.

    Edit: I thought that Keenan had mentioned the fact that if they don't add info to a field, it won't appear in the public display. That must have been in a different post.
