    Re: Do you have SMB clients in the San Francisco Bay Area?

    Thanks for sharing Priya. How did I miss that???

    I told Google for years they need to have a focus group for users and solicit feedback about the product, messaging, etc. Good move on their part.

    And yes would be a great way to bond with clients, if tell them about this opportunity, if they are in the area.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Do you have SMB clients in the San Francisco Bay Area?

    I assume the organizers knew of the 3 pack changes coming, but I wonder if the actual presenters of this meeting knew. Might be an interesting meeting to hear what business owners experiences are now like after ~20 days of change.

    Would also be interesting to know the results of the plumbers who are paying. Do all 20 listings on "plumbers in san francisco" pay to be there? Does anyone know the details of how this model works? PPC or pay to be #1, #2 and #3?

    Really good point Dan. Sure would like to be a fly on the wall in that meeting.

    I remember seeing how the pricing works somewhere. I thought it was at Mike's, but I just checked and can't find the info.

    Re: Do you have SMB clients in the San Francisco Bay Area?

    I've been very curious about the pricing myself. To date I've not found any references to how it will be structured but if anybody knows or has a resource to that info, I'd surely love to see it!
