    Prompt to review information

    Oftentimes, prompts to update a Places/Plus listing show up in the backend dashboard. Today, I came across such a prompt that showed up on the live listing while logged into the account that controlled the listing. It's not a huge deal -- just something different than I've seen.

    Upon clicking on the prompt, I was brought to the Google+ dashboard where the yellow banner we're all accustomed to seeing ("Please review your information") now displayed. This listing has existed for several months.

    Re: Prompt to review information

    Thanks for sharing Kerry, that's a new one on me too.
    (Showing on live page and going to G+ dash.)

    But I think it's a good thing Google is working on pushing users to check and clean up their listings.

    Maybe we should go back to poking once a month as a routine just to show Google the listing is up-to-date. My guess is listings that have had recent edits don't get the warning.

    I have not seen that before. Thanks for sharing.

    And I agree with Linda. It's always a good idea to check all your listings at least once a month to ensure they're still accurate.

    Re: Prompt to review information

    I've seen a lot of shaking up with the Google Places / Google + connections.
    As Scott said, just checking in every couple of weeks is always a good practice.

    Its actually great that Google is letting us know when they see issues, that way we know whats wrong with the listing!
