As a business owner, I have known for quite a while that Search Engine Optimization is an important part of having a successful business in an age when most consumers use the internet to do their research and to find the businesses that they will buy from.

Google created Google Places as a way to help consumers find the businesses in their area and they even gave business owners the ability to customize their listings which is great. Now businesses need to carefully consider Google Places Optimization because there is major competition to get your Google Places listing in front of the right customers.

James answers every question that a business owner would have and he does an amazing job of guiding the reader through the entire process of taking a Google Places listing from average to stellar.

His book is both informative and easy to read. This book is not just another text book style guide about Google Places SEO, but and book that is enjoyable to read and easy to understand. When you are finished reading this you will have a true understanding of what you need to do to create a great Google Places listing and what you can expect from your efforts.

This book is great, it has a step guide to getting started on Google Local, and some of the facts it provides really show why this is so important. I own a computer repair shop and have been reading up on how to build a better web presence. This book helped me every step of the way with regards to Google Local, and I have already seen new customer through the door as a result. The book also gave me some great tips on how to use citations to get my name out on other sites and how to optimize my webpage so that it shows up higher in a Google search. There is a lot more inside this book then just Google Local, and all of it proved very helpful to me.
