What a load of nonsense that Google representatives came out with...
>>Getting "only" 7% of clicks on places pages is losing them money - I know that's incorrect (that's a very healthy profit, especially when places are in the organic space and not replacing ads).
>>People would find it difficult to scroll through 10 links on a phone - what a joke!
>>Facebook is the best place for a local doctor to get business - again, that's not true.
>>If Google "knows" the answer that's better than showing just organic results - so how is Google Shopping an "answer" - that leads to a page with advertising and then links to further links or out to sites
I have just spent 3 hours watching this and I'm so angry that they never go called on so many of the "poor answers". I'd happily volunteer to be part of a technical team that rips their arguments to shreds.
In reality, this is heading nowhere for a while, whilst many companies hit the wall.
