Hello Guys,

Google places is important to get rank for local search, especially keywords relate with places. e.g tourist attraction Newyork city.

Secondly, people are relied on map to find the nearest company and service. E.g someone have no idea to find a eating place, they may just hunting the map.

Thanks and Regards

I suggest you look up tutorials on how people use google places on youtube, outside from just reading this forum. Its essential only because its like yelp, that helps expose local businesses to gain more customers.

 A Google place is a free listing with Google for any business with a physical location. Your location and company name appears on Google Maps, and in the Places section of a Google search. Users can also visit your Places listing to view more information about your company. Google Places allows your business to be found quickly when a user searches for a company in a geographic location.
