Google enhanced Google maps listings - estate agents, get yourself on there!

Google has just enhanced their map listings. It has worried some web design companies as it is a simplified version of a website. To access the page, users must click on 'More info'.
The Business page includes:

  • Category
  • Description
  • Details chosen by Business Owner
  • Photos and videos
  • Reviews
  • Small Google Maps
  • Sponsored links
  • Related Maps
  • Related Web pages
  • User content

Real web design companies do not need to fear. This business page is more like a directory than a website. It has all the information that the user requires to get to or get in contact with the estate agent. This webpage misses key features from a main webpage such as; feature properties, news section, email alerts, email a friend, individual properties, EPCs, floorplans, property particulars and enhanced Google Maps including local amenities such as schools, restaurants, local transport etc.

Although this directory doesn't have as many features as a website, estate agents need to enter their details on there. This is so that members of the public that click on 'More Info' will be able to access your full contact details. To add your business to Google Maps go to :.www.google.com/local/add
