Written by on Apr 21, 2010 in Small Businesses, Videos | 0 comments

Local companies in Camberley and surrounding areas, will soon be able to advertise their business services very cheaply with a new service.

Google are overhauling their “Local Business Centre”, in fact they are changing its name to Google Places.

What you ar going to get is an enhanced listing, using tagging to locate your business and to help local people find you business more easily.

So far it has only been rolled out to certain cities in the USA, but it is on the way.

For $25 per month businesses can add a tag to a local Google map, to which you can add additional information. You will also find any testimonials about your business there too.

According to Google this will not help your Google search rankings, but it will give you a higher profile, because your listing will stand out from the other normal page listings.

If you haven’t “Claimed” you free listing in Google then click here.

Every business should at least have a free Google listing as they show up on maps on page one of the normal search listings.

Google has very kindly made a video so we can understand where they are coming from.

Don’t for get to get your business listed
