Google Places is a business listing page within Google’s Maps service. Within Google Maps, your customers can find your products or services offered; as well as transportation directions and your business information.
The business information shown to a user within Google Maps is the product of the information compiled and retrieved from Google Places (or the business’ “Place Page”).
If you’ve ever conducted a search at Google.ie, you’ve probably already been exposed to Google Places. You’ll know this by the incorporation of a map and a set of listings when you include a city or region within your search.
In fact, recent changes in Google’s search engine will now show the Maps listings with a great deal of emphasis when a local search is conducted; pushing the “organic” listings down the page.
The listings from Google Maps take up the majority of the results page. And each of these listings is created by a Google Places listing.
