Google Places

So I have been on Google Places since the start so you would think that this is a good thing, Right, not so true. They have been doing all this updating and changing over that is supposed to help both the customer and the business, not so true.

For the last 4 months I have been getting the fatal "We do not currently support this location" bug, this has devasted my business as Movers is the most searched keyword for my business.

Can you imagine going from a annual salary of $200,000.00 + to $100,000.00 in less than a month? Well that is what I have been facing.

I have had to let go of Movers and now sit here with 1 crew that I can barely keep working. Looking for other avenues is all I do now and it is hard to find any that were as good as Google Places.

I have emailed them and all I get is the same old song and dance about how they are working on the issue and that I need to be patient, tell that to the 4 families that were relying on the income that I was providing them.

If you are smart you would work on getting your listings on other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, and the many others out there before Google shuts you down also.

By the way if you are in the Dallas area and need some Movers give us a shout.
