Google Places: Alert! Add Links to Google Places Listings

I started seeing information about this recently after we reported that Google Places would allow links to a restaurant menu or a hotel reservation desk. Some then started to wonder whether this would expand.  Apparently, expansion wasn't necessary.  However, we can see that Google is the monster version of Mario Bros, and we need to somehow figure this stuff out for ourselves.  Thus, put any link you desire.  Suggested links would be anything and everything except your website (which is already linked in the main body of the listing).  However, listing internal pages in your website that you would like to point out directly would be a great approach.

So blogs, Facebook Fan Pages, Twitter, MySpace (who?), and Meetup pages are all be examples of pages outside your website you could link.  As far as the inside is concerned, I would consider pointing out specific products, brands, services, specials, biographies of leadership.  The list goes on and on.

To add these links, merely access your Places listing by going to your Google Account.  Next, hit the edit link button.  At the bottom of the form you will see the Additional Details Section.  Add the link just as I have done for Montrose Bike's Blog.
