With the new changes the Google+ page has replaced Google Places in the blended Maps search results. With data from a merged Plus +Local Business page.
The first option is to go to the Google Product Forums – Google and Your Business and try the Help Articles. For some issues like Pending Review you may find an answer in the Google+ Local Help Forum. You need to be aware posts in there are indexed so use shortened URLs and do not give emails.
If you are making a new Google Places entry, which shows as a Google Plus Local page, I do the technical support for a Google Places Ebook which is a comprehensive guide to making a good entry compliant to all of the hidden rules as well. I offer 15 minutes of consultancy with the purchase for advice and troubleshooting.
Soon the current search Google+ Local page which is driven by the current Places entry will be replaced by it merging, or creating for you, with your matching Google+ (Local) Business page set up in your Google+ Profile.
For complicated issues such as, Suspended or ‘Quiet Purgatory’ accounts, or entries stuck in Pending Review, I offer private support to guide you and expedite a recovery of your search listing.
A new service is provided by Yext PowerListings to update Web Directories with matching data to your Google Places Entry.
Yexts second product is their Power Listings which from one dashboard allow you to update over 30 web directories with consistent data. Where this data matches your Google Maps blended search result Google Plus Local page it will add a citation to the ranking algorithms determination of the Places Listing at search time.
You can buy the Yext PowerListings here:
The service is provided for one year and in addition to keeping your data consistent with Google Places it allows you to quickly add offers.
If you buy the Yext Power Listings here I add an hours free Google Places, Google+ Local, Consultancy.
