        AMEN for this, Google Places has factors that can make you number 1, however grab a smart Phone and travel

        It all changes based on location, Rankings are GEO located however be the best in you location

        Look if you are a Pizzeria I doubt very much your customer base is over 10 miles. probably more like 6 miles

        You all really need to think about this when pitching to local business it is not all about advertising it is about acquistion cost and operational cost

      Great videos glad to see someone keeping it simple! Do you still find these practices to hold the same strength today as they did when you filmed this?

      I've found relevant back links to reviews/citations are about the best thing to get people ranked high in google places.

    This is a pretty dang good overview of the whole deal but there are still advantages to buying good Google Places WSO's. I'm very happy with the purchase I made ...You get a "hold my hand through several detailed processes" feel (which I definately need haha) - lots of examples, lots of extra resources...those types of things can make a purchase worth the considerable time and effort it took to craft them.

      I agree. WSO's rock. But if you've watched the video it's pretty step by step. I'm a step by step guy myself and try to teach the same way. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks so much for your comments!

        Tim, Yeah I watched them they are quite thorough. A person could run with it from here. In fact had I seen this before purchasing a WSO, I'm pretty sure I would have felt confident that I didn't need to get an WSO.

        I've been on a WSO buying spree lately haha ...sometimes I'll find that someone explains something to me in just a slightly different way, that it clicks, so I've enjoyed the WSO's I've gotten.

          Doran: I totally understand. Sometimes someone says something different and it FINALLY clicks for you.

      Hey Tim

      I watched all 4 vids thanks for these, learned a lot. When you talk about all the linking back is this to the ad placement on google places, or to the website of your mums?

    Hey Tim...

    Thank you for posting those videos... I didn't see the fourth one yet... But I did watch the first three....

    There are a lot basics covered on GP... That is awesome....

    Do you include KML files and Geo Sitemaps? In the fourth video does it tell you where the best feeder directories are? Just curious...

    I would like to get some new knowledge...

    I really enjoyed your presentation at the conference...

    I think if you and I were to hang out... we would get along just fine...

    This is a beginner course from a guy that can barely navigate this himself. There can be a lot of competition out there, and I feel this presentation is misleading. Yes, it is possible for you to build a profile for free, and have it up on Google in less than 34 days. That is assuming that you are in a market with no or very low competition. If you try this, and need a more competitive effort, let me know. I've got the strategy for competitive markets with Google Places.

    Hey Tim,

    I wanted to add, that I think it's cool that you are attempting to teach people, and I admire that. You do give some good advice for beginners. I just feel that you need to be more honest with people, and have more disclaimers at the beginning of the presentation. Especially at the beginning of a presentation that you plan on posting online. Other than that, I think you did a good presentation, and recovered nicely from the awkward moments at the beginning of your presentation.

    Hey, I did watch your whole video kudos on suggesting press releases.

      I gave it in 1986.

      By the way, the site in question is still #1 in Google and #1 in Google Places so whatever the recent updates were they haven't changed the ranking.

          Chad -

          Does it matter?

          I'm #1 for the terms the client wanted to rank for.

          That's all they care about, they're more than happy with the results.

          At the end of the day the bank doesn't ask how many people search for the term - they just let me cash the checks.

          In Charlie Sheen terms - I'm winning!
