As a savvy restaurant owner, you use Google Places to increase the brand awareness of your restaurant and to make certain your business is visible and searchable for your customer base. You understand the value behind this marketing tool and its ability to help you reach all those local foodies seeking their next dining adventure. But did you know your Google Places listing might be at risk of being de-listed?
Google recently reported that it will be making changes to its Google Places and Google Maps services. Among these changes is a request for all Google Places users to confirm some of the information on their accounts. Failure to do so by February 21, 2014 will result in the de-listing of your account through Google Places.
For most, this notice came via email from the Google Places team. However, not receiving the message does not necessarily mean that you are in the clear. Search Engine Journal explains that it is possible the message was automatically deleted by the spam filter of your inbox.
But don’t fret. We at Eateria™ are here to show you how to verify your account and avoid being de-listed. Follow these three easy steps to set your mind at ease.
