    Arrow POLL: Share Your Top New Year Wishes for Google Local in 2015 - VOTE!

    Tis the season! You'll see "Best of 2014" lists and you'll see posts with "Predictions for 2015".

    However, I thought I'd get a little New Years poll going, highlighting the most common wishes, suggestions or feature requests you all would most like to see added to Google My Business in the coming year.

    newyearpolTtop

    Help shape the future of Google Local in 2015. If you take time to weigh in, you can be sure Google will see this because they read my forum and I'll also be sure to personally alert management to this poll.

    I've only listed some of the main requests I've heard or could think of, since there is a poll limit. BUT I'm sure there many other creative suggestions out there. You might even have a cool idea no one else has thought of yet. If so, please share!

    Vote for your favs above now - multiple choices allowed. (But try to keep it to your top 2 or 3)
    Feel free to add any other New Year wishes/suggestions below too.


    And lest we forget, here are a few of the features we wanted for a long time that Google has recently given us. We need to remember to be thankful for what we already have!

    Unified dashboard
    Everyone upgraded and on the same platform
    Better dashboard messaging
    Improved and clarified quality guidelines
    Instant verification
    Phone support
    Improved reporting (even phone tracking)
    Review dashboard and notifications
    Add managers and transfer accounts options
    Mobile listing management app
    Upgrades to bulk (GMB Locations)
    And more...


    I know I missed a couple updates, but I think I mentioned most of the important ones.

    Fire away on that poll now, because Google is listening!

    Please share other wishes/feature requests below, that are not covered in the poll.

    Also please elaborate on any of the poll choices. For example if you voted for "better listing management interface for agencies" - please explain what that would look like to you.

    Re: POLL: Share Your Top New Year Wishes for Google Local in 2015 - VOTE!

    My wish is for one custom category. I don't care if it has to end in supplier or service or whatever, just give us an ability to properly list businesses that don't fit into the existing limited boxes.

    Oh that's a good one Michael. Just one custom. That would make a lot of sense!


    So how about the rest of you? What's high up on your Google wishlist???

    Sure Ron. But if everyone voted for all of them, then the poll would not have much meaning, so that's why I suggested top 2 or 3. But if you want them all, go for it.
