Google Places Out, Google Local Takes Over - Automotive Digital Marketing Professional Community

Google Places Out, Google Local Takes Over - Automotive Digital Marketing Professional Community

Matt O'Such writes: "What's a Car Dealer to do now that Google+ Local is taking over Google Places?  Go with the flow. Google is just asking you to do what it feels is best business practices. Claim your account, add a description, photos of the staff & showroom, pick the right default categories, fix your marker, ask for reviews in the service lane and at sales.  Start to focus on social indicators like Google and Bing are now doing. They want a personalized feeling for your customers, and increased engagement with social factors like +1, Shares, Tweets, Links and Likes.  Expect that the next change is just around the corner, and when Google flips the switch you'll need to be on the cutting edge to keep up with automotive internet marketing."
