Google Pre-Announces Plus Features for Bulk
We’ve listened carefully to your feedback. In the future, you’ll be able to:
- Make updates and posts to your customers using the Google+ page for your location
- See Insights to help you track your business’s performance on Google
- Filter to view relevant subsets of locations within your account
Google almost never publicly talks about futures which implies that this feature might be closer than we had thought. It certainly is a last, remaining brick for the foundation of Google Local being built on top of Plus. It is critical to have parity across all local pages and this would offer that missing feature to bulk users.
In other news, Google confirmed that with the most recent upgrade to the Bulk accounts, listings will be locked from being dual claimed. This means that 1)listings will be more secure and 2)bulk users will not be able to selectively upgrade specific bulk uploaded listings to Plus (which many have been doing) UNTIL the above feature is released.
