Quick Tour of Google+ Local Pages

They’ve just opened up Google+ Pages for everyone. Here’s a quick tour of the Local screens, which appear to be pre-populated with Google Places data (without any official linkage to Places that I can see yet). It’s a very simple four or five step process.

I couldn’t go farther than this because I’m not authorized to create a page on behalf of this business. But I’d be curious to hear more from those who are.

What do you think will happen with Local+ Pages? Will they be adopted — by retailers, franchises, SMBs? How might they be best integrated with Google Places (I’m sure Google has already thought that through).

    very simple indeed. the user profile and page switching option is confusing and hard to find though.

    I need to explore them more myself.

    In the words of one of the galaxies eternal thinkers “fascinating”.. 

    I too need time to explore the synergy between Places pages and Google + for businesses, but Google continues to evolve its local offerings for the better, so this is just the beginning
