Throw Away Your PO Box: Google Adds Service Area Listing Tool Businesses no longer have to get PO Box to get a local listing ... mjtaylor msg:4136900 2:14 am on May 22, 2010 (gmt 0) For business people who work from home but don't want to list their address or for those who service areas away from their storefront or headquarters, Google has added a Service Area Listing Tool. The not-yet-officially-announced Service Area Tool is now available, Google’s Carter Maslan told Eric Enge in an interview last week: The tool is still in the testing phases, but should be available in most areas, he said.

How cool! A way to game locations! (I see bad guys taking advantage).... Silvery msg:4137675 1:37 pm on May 24, 2010 (gmt 0)
How cool! A way to game locations! Yet, what would be the incentive for trying to show up in an area where you don't provide services/products? Doing that would be needless, and would risk complaints from disappointed consumers and perhaps even penalty or deletion from Google.
