Get More Local Backlinks By Claiming Your Google Places Page


Here is an article which explains the basics of Google Places– Google has set up 50 million local mobile optimized, Google maps integrated websites for local businesses.

Is your business local? Do you have a local mailing address? If so you can claim your Google Places page and optimize it for your niche by adding links, videos, pictures, descriptions, and reviews. These pages get ranked often above the other Google natural listings, and the most reviewed and most complete profiles in each niche generally get top ranked.

Here is a beginner’s introduction to Google Places.


After a career as a professional musician and band leader in the Miami South Florida Area I decided to see if I could make some money with this new internet thing. After years of trial and error I started to get the hang of it and now I am completely financially independent because of my various online businesses. The goal of this blog is to chronicle my continued marketing experiences. I focus on real examples of what works and what does not work. Google does not give us a recipe for getting our sites ranked. We have to use our own experiences to see what actually works rather than theory. I hope you enjoy the blog. Please let us know what you think in the comments area. We appreciate your feedback.
