Google has just announced that users of the popular search engine can now upload photos that relate to a business located on Google. Up until recently only the business owner could upload and attach photos to their Google Local section. This move shows Google is putting their foot forward in the “Social Network” space. This follows in the footsteps of other local types sites that are popular within the social circles.
This also demonstrates that a business listing will continue to grow over a period of time as the “social network” participates and adds information to the listing that they feel is relevant. The importance of growing and stabilizing your local listing on Google is becoming more and more important every day as businesses are starting to understand that you cannot inconsistently put information about your business on the World Wide Web and expect results!
