Google Places Team Creates Google+ Support Hangout Tomorrow

Dealers, if you have been having problems with Google Places, this may be the right time to join the Google+ Hangout.

Join +Joel Headley and +Vanessa Schneider at 11 a.m. PST this Wednesday, April 4, 2012, as they discuss Google Places for business. 

To join the Hangout, follow this link:  Google Places Hangout 


I know that many of you have tried to escalate your questions and issues with Google Places and have not gotten very far.  I understand your frustration, and I encourage you to be patient.  Things will be getting better in the future.


How do I join a hangout?


  • You must be in a video conference room or have a video chat camera on your computer
  • Next, login to Google using an existing gmail address or creating a new one (you can login to Google by visiting and clicking on the ''Login'' button in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
  • Click on the link to the hangout and in the upper right-hand corner select "start hangout."



I hope this forum provides some help.  Share your experience if you attend.

Now, all we have to do is get a web camera on every computer.  Any thoughts on when that might happen?  Automotive Dealerships and many individuals have been slow to adopt web cameras it seems.  With web cameras being almost standard issue in laptops we will see the penetration increase, but that won't be the answer for many dealerships.  It's going to be an exciting couple years!

+Jason Hangouts are very cool and just the beginning of more integrated video chat and video conferencing in our lives.

Google may have blown the lid off again.  This hangout tool is going to be another game-changer.  I was skeptical about google+ and its relevance until further investigation revealed how much power was really there.  This hangout concept is truly amazing.  Again I want to ask, when do they start charging for these great items?  Wouldn't it be great to be so stable as a company that you would be able to continue to roll out innovation after innovation and not charge for it?  Perhaps we should be thanking all of the car manufacturers and dealerships for their continued support of google's bread and butter, advertising.  Without them I am not sure how google would be able to do all of this amazing work for free.  Thank you automotive industry!

I just spoke with Brian Pasch via phone and we both agreed that with all the pain that our industry has suffered around disappearing Google Places Reviews and listings that revert to incorrect data, we should all encourage everyone in the auto industry to get on this Google Hangout that Brian has referenced in this post...
