    Re: 10 Things SEOs & SMBs Should Know About New Google Places Dashboard

    Thanks for the article. I just tried to get into places dashboard to verify our church's listing, but I see it has all changed. Can anyone direct me where to enter the pin# now to verify the listing?

    Thanks!

    Sorry Laurie. I haven't got that far yet with any of my clients.

    I'll update you as soon as I do.

    Let us know how it goes.

    He says newly verified listings can get the dashboard? A few days after the roll out I claimed a listing through Google+ Local and was taken to Google Places. No new dashboard.

    Should I have claimed it through Google Places for Business or something?

    Josh, it hasn't rolled out to ALL listings just yet. We set-up listings today, and most still had the "old" dash.

    Strange, thought it was rolled out to all new listings. Must have misread it.

    No, I think you read correctly. I would chalk it up to the fact that these things just take time to roll out completely.
