I recently posted about Google Place Problems on my blog and the more and more I research into Google places the more problems you find. Take a look at the number one Places listing for “Hotels Sydney” This term gets around 6,000 searches a month so traffic is quite good one would think. Yet taking a look at the type of reviews Google allows they are obviously not the high quality you would expect, you would think their is at least a word limit some one has written a review consisting of “Hi” other reviews are just random scrapings it looks like.

I think Google needs to clean up this mess as business’s who have invested in SEO for organic listings now need to compete with these new changes in Places listings yet you would never advise a client to use “dodgy” tactics like the ones I have been seeing in places listings around the world.
