Google Places URL shortener
At last, Google have made it possible to easily produce a shortened form of the Google Places page url.
Nyagoslav at OptiLocal has alerted me to the fact that, instead of
it is now possible to create a shortened form of that url to give to other people.
Click on the map that is situated to the right of the required Google Places page and in the top right hand corner, you will see a chain link. December 2011 Update – Google have now moved this chain link to the top of the left hand sidebar
Click that and you have the option to create a short ‘goo’ link that you can save and use for anyone that you would like to direct to your Places Page
I have been waiting for this for some months now. It’s going to make it much easier to send satisfied customers in the direction of your Google Places page when they ask where they can leave a positive testimonial.
I really hope that this is one of the Google Places changes that sticks around.
