When Google Places transitioned to Google+ Local it caused quite a stir. Three months on, whats the overall verdict on the new Local Search page?
I know you will agree when I say that Google is still the undisputed king when it comes to local search, after all 97% of consumers confirm that they research local businesses before making a buying decision. So, have the recent Google + Local (Google Places) changes been a boost or a bust? What are your thoughts?
