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.

Josh - Google+ Local, Google Places and Google Places for Business are all the same thing. They all take you to either the old or new Places dash - depending on when the upgrade hits.

Sounds like you verified a few days ago. It had not rolled out to all new users then.

Jade just let us know yesterday afternoon that the new dashboard is now available for all new US user and I believe it had JUST finished rolling out to all new users right then.
