I would like to offer Google Places creation and optimization services to small businesses, but I have a few questions. Maybe you can help.
1. How do you know if a company already has a Google Places page? (Other than tediously looking through all the Google Places pages by hand to see if that domain is listed there.)
2. How do you know if that page was created automatically by Google, or by someone else?
3. Can people like myself, who own service-based businesses that offer internet marketing services, have a Google Places page? I ask this question because when I type in keywords related to internet marketing, I rarely see Google Places pages come up.
