    Does anyone used it before? I heard you can put your website on the Google map for advertising and it is totally free.. But you will need to validate it with the postcard Google send to your house.

    Anyone tried?

    Google Places is for any business with an actual physical location. In addition to your business name and address, you can add a description of your business, your hours, and can even list specials if you like. The Google Places User Guide can be found here. Your listing is verified by either phone or a postcard sent to your business address.
    Like anything else on Google, there are rules that must be followed. For instance, your business name must incluse only the actual business name, and cannot include words or phrases designed to try and get a higher ranking. For the complete Google Places Quality Guidelines, click here.

    i'm using it since long time ago for my business. That's kinda easy, you just need to input your business information, it required you to input your phone number for verification, they will call you or sms you the PIN number. And you just need to verify your company with the PIN number and your company will be listed

    Yes I’m used it for increase my business. Fill all the information after filled out then Google randomly generate validation option, maybe it send post card or second Google calling for validation. They provide a PIN Number. Enter the PIN and Conform your Business Listing.
