Justin Sanger, CEO of JoinHere, an interesting new SMB “Social Engagement Platform”, puts it thus:
“A G+ and G Places integration will create the most powerful discovery, publishing, and social suite the marketplace has seen to date. The G maps algo will undergo more change as content contribution, followers, and +1s begin to affect discovery – rightfully so, as we move closer and closer to an algo that mimics the real world. A G Place will be the heart of G+ just as the personal profile is today and the company will begin to contribute content in the form of tags, deals, and informational posts. G will also bring to bear its mobile assets to complete the suite. For those that have been long-term players in the local space and for those that have watched and embraced the birth of social, the next year will prove to be a watershed period in how we view the space and how we service businesses through what will be a transformation.”
My thoughts today on Search Engine Land: What Will Google Plus Google Places Equal?

Given the Google Plus fever that seems to be the buzz all over the internet right now I can totally see this. Though I would like them to hurry up and integrate YouTube on Google+
It’s a avery exciting time as the landscape of search keeps changing rapidly.
Thanks to your efforts and those of others, small business owners may soon be able call attention to themselves in a medium that has long been dominated by national online retailers.
Google has given local business owners the FREE tools to be relevant to an online audience. I am hopeful that business owners will use them.
Google + is a new policy of Google. It can make your site Rank.
Google + def seems a step in right direction and SEO’s need to be on top of it. Thanks for update.
