In that spirit, our first installation of “Your Questions” relates to Bulk Uploads to Google Places. Have more than 10 listings you want to claim in Google Places? It’s easier then you think.
Q & A Intro
GW: Is there a way to create Google Places pages in “bulk” (upload info from an .xls, perhaps) for a company with many locations?
UBE: Thanks for the question G. Yes, you can do that for 10 or more locations.
GW: Wow, that’s awesome. Does Google provide instrux on how to do that? Does each location have to receive and respond to a postcard in the mail? Or can it be centrally managed?
UBE: You can manage them all from one account but they each would have their own, separate listing.
And now, the “How To”
