PinPoint Local Alert: Google Places Guidelines Update

Google Places Guidelines Update: Google recently announced a vital new change to their “Google Places Quality Guidelines”.
This change effects service based businesses who service customers at a location other than their main business address.

The change to the guidelines states this:
If you don’t receive customers at your location, you must select the “Do not show my business address on my Maps listing” option
within your dashboard. If you don’t hide your address, your listing may be removed from Google Maps.

For more information on the Google Guidelines, click here.
