Is the title confusing? Well it doesn’t get any less confusing than that which is why I’m writing this post. This article explains the difference between Google+ Local Pages and Google+ Pages in Google+.
About Google+ Local Pages Listings
Google Places business listings were recently migrated to Google+ under a tab called ‘Local’ which is why the name is Google+ Local. Below is a screenshot of our Google+ Local listing.
Note the popup window that says ‘Page’ above. The reason for this is that Google may at some point be merging their Google+ Local listings with their Google+ Pages which is why the tag ‘Page’ is also on their Google+ Local listings.
About Google+ Pages
Now in the other side Google+ Pages is Google’s version of Facebook Pages. Below is a screenshot of our Google+ Page. Note that there is also a tag here that says ‘Page’ which is why some are getting confused about these two different types of Pages in Google+.
What You Need To Understand
Google+ Pages and Google+ Local Pages are two different Google products. At this point is easier to simply keep thinking of Google+ Local Pages as Google business listings.
If this is still confusing leave a comment below haha.
