Optimize Google Places 2012 – A List of Suggestions for Google – Part 4 – Transfer of Ownership

Posted in Internet marketing by smallbusinessonlinecoach on December 31, 2011

I found this post interesting and I thought I’d share here:
I like to share interesting posts and information about internet marketing that read in my Google reader. Let me sort through the junk to bring you the real goods when comes to local internet marketing for small businesses. I thought this was super useful. if you like it be sure to share maybe subscribe to the authors blog: http://googleplaceshelp.blogspot.com/ Current official instructions from Google Places state that there is no way to transfer ownership from one Google Account to another.  This presents huge issues.  Many folks set up their Google Places before they know this, and attach it to their Google Account with their personal email and personal YouTube account.  Now they want to sell the store.  Whoops!

Sure, the GooglePlacesSphere has spoken loudly about this.  So how could the poor sap who owns the local pizza shop have not known.  Here’s my question.  Why is it such a big deal to allow transfer of the Google Places from one Google Account to another?

Now, just for fun or something.  Let me tell you that the other day an account decided to try an experiment.  They removed their Google Places account from their Google Account.  Then they immediately claimed it on another account.  It worked and the kept all the reviews.

Any one else try this and have it work or not work?????
