In the past a listing on Google spaces generally only attracted spam and employment requests, rather than new business for me.
However, with front page SERPs being increasingly devoted to this feature, I have been trying unsuccessfully to get my new business listed on Google places. It has a bricks and mortar address, services local clients and appears to fit the bill point by point under their terms and conditions. However, my application and reconsideration requests are continually rejected with a standard template.
Why do they play this game? Why not simply tell you why your request has been rejected? Is there some big secret about all of this?
I would be interested in other people's experiences.
