Google + Local : Optimization Approach for Hotels

Last week was Google’s launch of Google + Local, which consists in the integration of Google Places into Google +, along with the integration of Zagat‘s ratings and reviews.

This launch represents a huge turning point for Google +, because it adds a social functionality  to Google Places, but also to Google Maps… which will probably encourage people to create a Google + Profile and share the experience they have had in any local businesses.

Hotels including restaurants are first concerned but so are small and medium sized hotels… because their presence on Google Maps will redirect hotel guests on their G+ Local page first.

Using The Facebook Timeline To Share Your Brand’s Backstory

by Josiah Mackenzie

Storytelling has always worked well in social media, and Facebook’s new “social by design” emphasis means their business pages now look a lot less like a little separate company websites and more like a real-time stream of status updates from that organization.
Jamie Tedford had a great article on Forbes about how this design change gives us as marketers new tools for storytelling.
