    Google place

    I own a business directory where people come and post their business information. We use the Google map to display their location.

    My question is.. How can I best use Google place to benefit my customers?

    I found the a API which can add the businesses automatically to Google place..

    But what other ways can I utilize Google Place to benefit my customers and achieve better results in search?

    Thanks

    Be aware that the maps API is no longer 100% free. After 10k calls to the API they start charging or shut it off.
    You can't create artful marketing with color by number seo

    As far as I understand, and it would be great to be corrected, you can only add a location, a name and a category via the API, this in effect will create an unclaimed map-pin.

    The SEO benefit only really kicks in when the business 'claim' the map-pin, and the clients website is added to that claimed map-pin, along with completing all the details and pictures that become available for a claimed business.

    Let me know if you know differently, please.
