I now offer an Ebook, Google Places Blueprint, giving my up to date advice on making a Google Places entry with a years free updates.

This covers making a correct entry and advice on optimisation to get the ranking needed to get on page 1 of the Places search result listings.

For Google and Your Business help forum users who I have previously posted to I update the 15 minutes free support to 30 minutes.  If my help is of use please leave a little thank you in your forum post.

There is now an Affiliate Program for you to sell the Ebook:

I am offering an initial Places entry and +Local Business page review for 30 pounds.  This will include:

Reasons for Pending being Reviewed.  I have a 100% record so far of getting a new Places entry Pending Review record to go to the next PIN verify stage and former Active ones back to Active and in the Maps index and ranking queue.

Also if your Places entry is appearing for a local search in Google Maps by Phone no or (Business name and location) but not in a Places search result I can advise on changes needed to show in the search.  These are more detailed and subject to change compared to those in the Quality Guidelines.

If you have had your Places account Suspended, go into Quiet Purgatory, or out of the blue 'location is not supported' then I can advise on the reason and the best option to edit a Places entry to get back Active again and appearing in the Places search result.

Also I do advice on how to set up a + Profile, +Brand/+Business and/or a +Local Business page to best use Google Plus social and normal search Google+ pages driven by a Places entry.
