I noticed that Lockhart Smokehouse BBQ had their Google+ page connected to YouTube, but Wheeling Island didn't. Also Wheeling Island could have added more categories. All in all a great article to make sure we are focused on the details.

Things I make sure to do for every client:
  • maximize relevant categories
  • add full description, sometimes with links to internal pages
  • add hours
  • add quality logo and cover
  • link to YouTube

I never thought to add links to social media in the description, as Big Mill Bed & Breakfast does.

I have verified links to website on some, but I now am going to push harder to do that for everyone.

Good thread.
