Google+ Local and Google Places are at a standstill
It appears with Google’s change on May 30, 2012 to Google+ Local has ground the service to a halt.
Google seems to be done broke!
I have a couple sites I’m working with that were just beginning the Google Places process. One went through the old Google Places claiming process and the other used the new Google+ Local claiming process.
Both sites have not been verified by Google Places or Google+ Local or whoever at Google is supposed to verify sites these days.
I would love to know what is going on behind the scenes today at Google in this area. It must be complete anarchy.
- Google Places switches to Google+ Local
- Google Maps is dropped by Apple on the Apple iOS
- Google+ Local business pages seem to have numerous glitches
- Google Business Builder – an even more aggressive business model including Google+ is apparently coming out in July.
- Wow…. a lot going on.
BUT WHAT ABOUT ME! I just want to be verified. It sounds so simple. The process used to happen quite quickly in an automated fashion.
Here is what I am seeing.
I want to know.
Are others seeing the same sort of slow response from Google? Maybe it is just Canada?
