    Is Google Map Places Method still applicable after google places moves to google +1? How is everyone adapting and ranking locally now?

    It says in the method to use a pic of google places. Should that be changed in anyway to adapt to the new google +1 shift?

    I'm curious to know this as well. Just spent quite a bit of time reading through the thread and really think it's a solid method, but it will require some work and dedication which I would only be willing to do if it was still a working method.

    I setup my Google Places site 3 months ago. I liked the look and everything. I just went out to change something yesterday and it is half gone and it looks like c#&p! Don?t tell me Google is not trying to get rid of Google Places. I know they say they told everyone, but I never got an email. If I wanted a Google+ account, I would have got one.

    My complain is with Google and the fact they think they can just do whatever they want. Google+ is not winning in social media, so they hijack millions of customers and put them in it without their consent.

    Excuse me, I'm just a little bit upset at Google for being a bully and just finding out I have c#&p instead of a Google Places account.

    Citations should be the same. I'm sure Google will start putting a lot of weight to an active Google+ page. Time to include Google+ in your SMM offerings.

    This is the best of three long webinars I've watched on the changes to Google Places to Google+ local. Jeff Schwerdt is knowledgeable and presents well. There is chart that you can download that can be presented to clients without scaring them with details. The first video runs 79 minutes; the others are shorter.
