Google Gives Advice for Business Listings

Earlier this week, we looked at how changes to Google’s search results make your listing in Google Places even more important. In line with this, Google has started blogging about how businesses should create and manage their listings.

The series is running over on Google’s Small Business Blog and points out some common-sense information (make sure all your business details are completely accurate) and shares examples of common mistakes businesses are making that can mean their listings have to be suspended. According to the post, even over-use of capitals and punctuation is against the rules.

If haven’t listed your real estate business on Google Places, remember that it’s free and very worthwhile as another way to reach customers online. To sign up, go to Google Places here.
