Google Upgrades Its Google Places Dashboard With Google+ Local Integration

By: Matt McGee

Google has begun a staged upgrade of its Google Places Dashboard — the backend tool that allows local businesses to manage their business information that appears in Google’s search results. A new dashboard that looks much more like the current Google (and Google+) aesthetic, and also offers some new functionality, will be available “over the coming weeks.”

Basically,the changes so far involve the new dashboard design,  enhanced integration with Google products and quick update system.  Although it’s hard for many people to embrace new processes especially when they are too used to the old one,  we just have to implement these updates to be able boost our online exposure further and push our business forward as a result.
