    Google+ Local HUGE Layout Change

    Holy Jebus, Google just made a crazy new layout change overnight (or maybe I missed this yesterday???)

    I checked with a few clients as well, but my company's page is completely changed

    Hubshout's Local Page

    Has this been 100% rolled out everywhere?

    Hi Eric,

    I'm seeing it as well. It must have went live where I am in the last 15 minutes or so.

    I like it. Looks cleaner than the previous layouts... actually it looks a lot like what Citysearch did with their pages...

    Re: Google+ Local HUGE Layout Change

    WOWSER - I leave to work on a new post and 10 minutes later everything changes.
    THANKS FOR HEADS UP ERIC!

    Remember the past 2 days in posts when I was addressing the funky stats issue and said it could be an update shaking things up.

    When I posted to ask Google, another TC asked me if I thought this may be a sign of a pending update:

    "A lot of things can get wonky during updates. I've been suspecting that could be what's up, but I have nothing to back that up. Just gut feeling that it's about time 'she' rocks our world again.

    YEP! She's rocking our world again. Off to explore and see if anything else is new!

    HOT! New Reviews Tab!

    SOOOOO exciting!

    Re: Google+ Local HUGE Layout Change

    Yes, our G+ profile pages are getting a huge makeover today. Personally, I think it's a big improvement. I especially like the fact that reviews will have their own tab, which I think will perhaps prod or at least remind people to write Local reviews.

    Here's a little more about the changes as shared by Googler Sara McKinley:

    - A new tab for your Local reviews. In addition to your photos, +1's and YouTube videos, there's now a place for all your Local reviews. Highlight your favorite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings -- it's completely up to you.

    - An easier way to edit your info. The 'About' tab now consists of separate cards (like Story, Places, and Links) -- each with its own prominent edit link. As always: you can share specific fields with specific circles, or keep them just for you.

    - Bigger cover photos, with a better aspect ratio. Cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2120px by 1192px), and they display in 16x9 when fully expanded. This way more images can be used as cover photos, and there’s more room for your selection to shine.

    Everything's rolling out gradually, so check back soon if you don't see it yet.

    Re: Google+ Local HUGE Layout Change

    I have to agree that the new layout is much more visually appealing. This all seemed to have happened in the last hour or so on my end.

    Definitely nice changes. Just wish they made the Google+ Local pages open to SAB businesses.

    Re: Google+ Local HUGE Layout Change

    Thanks David for posting the update from Sara at Google. I just found it too (and made your post about it bigger and stand out a little more.)

    Here is another post from Google+ Daily:

    Google Plus Daily: [Major Update] New Profile and Page Experience

    The brand new 'Reviews' tab replaces the Reviews link that was previously in the 'About' section of your profile. The change makes it easier to share with the world your reviews of your favourite restaurants, coffee houses and more.

    The new tab is filled with colourful widgets which aggregate information on your reviews. As you can see in the screenshot above, there is a Map widget which displays placemarks of the places around the world that you've reviewed. This should hopefully attract more Google+ users to write more reviews for Google+ Local.
