Mike Blumenthal shares some more insight into his experience in Budapest.


HOW MANY BUSINESSES HAVE VERIFIED G+ PAGES FOR LOCAL?

While at SIINDA conference, Google was an obvious point of reference and conversation both in the formal sessions and the informal discussions afterwords.

One number that was bandied about was the total number of currently verified local business listings worldwide. While I have no way to independently verify the number of 20 million verified listings, as Google has not confirmed it, the number noted seemed credible and reasonable. Roughly 20% of all of the world’s businesses as of last November.
