Google Video Tutorial- Posting Pictures on Places Business Listings

The picture section of Google Places is extremely important; especially for grabbing the attention of the internet surfer.   Obviously, putting picture onto the places information section makes the whole presentation look much more exciting.  For a lawyer or doctor, a picture of the owner might be a good idea.  But for a jewelry store on Google Places, I would suggest a picture of a really nice ring.

The potential customer or client will learn a lot more about you from 10 pictures than from 10,000 words (or so the saying goes).  But the importance doesn't stop there.  Google counts those pictures towards your 100% status and thus it will effect your standing on the outside MAP.  If those two reasons weren't enough, your first picture becomes an thumbnail icon on your primary listing.  And if you have that picture, and it is emotionally appealing, you will undoubtedly increase the number of folks who click in to see the rest of your places site.  Here is a video with some more instructions.  You can also check out the pictures tutorial on the left side column of this blog.
