Question by Bill B: Google Places Unleashed: any un-biased reviews?
I am in the process of advertising my business on Google Places. When I search for similar businesses in my town I end up wading through the Google Place pages of businesses located 50 or 75 miles away!

There are a number of tutorials, but most of them list the same 3 or 4 pieces of advice (which I fully intend to follow). I am trying to find a comprehensive overview of Google Places: an article that describes how the search engine rankings are determined and what steps a Place owner can take to have local patrons actually see their local Place listing, rather than the listings of Places 50 miles away. I am very frustrated at this point: one can easily find comprehensive tutorials online about getting a web site ranked high in search results (tutorials posted by helpful souls free of charge), but searching for the same info about Google Places results in endless pages about this "Google Places Unleashed" marketing material (a series of video and other tutorials).

If you follow the links to the "Google Places Unleashed" home page, it reads like pretty much any other scam: "make hundreds of dollars for a few minutes of work from home", etc, etc. But for all my searching I cannot find a single fact about the material at all. Every page reads exactly like every other and I suspect it's all written by the same individual. I am pretty sure it's a scam, but I would welcome any links to unique reviews about it. I would also welcome any links to some online tutorials about Google Places.

Question by Patrick: Any places to download movies on android that is not google play?
Google play has some alright movies, but I'm going on a 12 hour car ride tomorrow, and I want to watch movies that are not available on Google play, such as the Star Wars movies Any suggestions? Money isn't a problem for me as long as its about 3-4 dollars for a movie

Best answer:

Answer by Sabrina (Pokie)
There are a few hundred thousand apps available for download from Google’s official Android Market. But not every Android device can access the Market, and not every app is available from Google’s app superstore.

Gameloft, for instance, has a reputation for releasing highly polished (if not exactly original) games without always going through the Android Market. Other developers, such as Grooveshark, have been booted from the Market but continue to offer apps for Android users, because unlike iOS, Windows Phone 7, and some other mobile platforms, Android allows users to install apps that aren’t downloaded from the official Market.

Here are 17 places to find free and paid apps without Google’s help. The list is arranged alphabetically, but not all of these app stores are created equal. Look for the asterisk next to the name to find Mobiputing’s favorites.

Note that Appbrain, Cyrket, AndroLib and other third party App directories are not included in this list. Those all require you to download apps through the Android Market. The following app stores are all designed to let you download and install apps directly. I’ve also left out a handful of app stores that are exclusive to a specific wireless carrier or a line of phones or tablets.

* Amazon Appstore

The Amazon Appstore is probably the highest profile alternative to the Google Android Market. Amazon has a well-organized app store which you can navigate on the web or using a mobile app. Once you install the app on your device you can also make purchases or add free apps to your cart using a web browser and simply open the app on your mobile device to view a list of apps available for download

Question by Huzefa Badri: how to mark places on google maps using android phone ?
please can you tell me how do I mark some places like my house, my shop , my friends house etc on google maps using my android phone/

Best answer:

Answer by vjmaliyil
You cannot do it with google maps. But you can do it using google map maker. go to www.google.com/mapmaker. You can access this page via your computer or your mobile device. Once you identify your location, you can mark placess like shops, places of interests etc. In a couple of days, someone will review it and you will be able to see the update in your google maps. I did that for a couple of places near my home town.

Answer by Chris S
Fortunately, you can't. Google sends the postcard to the address that is listed for that particular place in order to prevent someone from hijacking a business' Google Places listing.

Question by Kay-Lynn: On google places I have a business listing, and the pictures on there are not mine?
How do I get them off of there? I have logged into everyaccount but there is one picture that doesn't go with my buisness?

Please help I have already contacted google, but they didn't do much

Best answer:

Answer by Pearls Before Swine
This is the Google page that explains what you can try:
http://support.google.com/places/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=176504

If you can't get anywhere, how about having a bunch of your friends and family members all contact Google separately to complain about the picture - that way Google will be less likely to ignore a single person who complains.

How do you rank high on Google Places?

Question by Fix Computers: How do you rank high on Google Places?
I have already got many citations and listed on most business directories and optimized my Google listing.

Best answer:

Answer by EnvisionNetInc
Keep in mind It can take 30 - 90 days for your citations to be indexed by the various directories.

Google also considers on-page optimization as a factor when ranking local businesses. Such as phone number and address in the footer of each page. A contact page with phone number address and hours of operation.

Do a search in Google for "how do I optimize for local search" you will find several helpful articles

The most current version of Google Maps has a Places Directory built into it. If you have the most current version of Google Maps you should also have an app called Places.
