Do You Have Questions About Google Places?

Question For Google Places

Google is opening up a forum for asking questions about Google Places. It’s something they did last year, as they say in the announcement:

A little more than a year ago, we collected your questions and feedback on Google Places for business via a Google Moderator page. You sent us some great feedback, and we had a blast responding! Check out our video responses here on YouTube, covering things like features of a listing, Report a problem and ranking.

This is your chance to get questions answered. You can also vote on existing questions to have some influence over what Google decides is worthwhile. To contribute your input, visit the Google Product Ideas Page.

    Chris,

    This is a really great effort by Google, but I think they are more focused on getting feedback on what should be improved re Google Places, rather than actually answering questions. It’s just my personal feeling :)

      Nyagoslav – Thanks for the comment. It’s funny, because they do phrase it as getting feedback, yet their example from last year is mostly about how they answered questions. Maybe that’s because some of the people providing feedback don’t really understand Places very well, and Google can satisfy them more through education than an update to Places. We’ll see if any action is taken – most of the feedback I think is pretty obvious stuff that they’ve certainly heard before.

      Also – I noticed you had a lot of feedback for them in there, I voted for a bunch of your suggestions :)

    Chris, I was actually planning to write a blog post about that as it is truly huge event, but the problem is that I positively know that my blog is being followed by a lot of black hatters, so I’d not like them hear too much about this event. Then they could start spamming “dislikes” as happened with one of Mike B’s comments.
