Google Places Changes Again!! Surprise Surprise Surprise!


Looks like Yahoo, Yelp and others complained that Google Places was using their reviews unfairly so now only actual Google users reviews are displayed.   Here are the confirmed highlights from the most recent changes:
  • Third party reviews have been withdrawn from Google Places pages
  • Third party reviews may still be in the Google Places results
  • Links to review sites may still show up in both Google Places Search results and on the Places page
  • Many of the details added by the business owner are not showing up on the Google Places page
  • A more prominent “Write a review” and “Upload a photo” button to promote Google users to post reviews

Here’s additional info from Google’s Latitude Longitude Blog that talks about the recent changes!
