We had a feeling Google would cash in as soon as they realized agencies and individuals were charging to put businesses on Google Maps.
It’s been a challenge to get businesses listed on the front page of Google in the Google Maps section. Some SEO agencies were using certain strategies to get businesses listed in the Google Maps listings on the first page of geo-targeted searches, but now it looks like Google will make millions with this new “advertisie on Google Maps” opportunity.
Recently, I posted about Google’s “Exact Match” tactic to cause advertisers to spend more in Google AdWords, a practice they say has been in place since 2006.
