When you are searching the natural listings in Google, have you ever noticed a PlusBox under the listing? These are normally used for either a Google Map or a YouTube video.
It’s a pretty cool function actually.
Google has decided to include this feature in their Adwords system. If you choose to have this PlusBox show with your ads, you can choose to show your geographical information, which includes a map, address, driving instructions, and phone number. You aren’t charged anything extra either.
If you are using local business ads already, this feature is already enabled. This is a great idea, except for one thing. The only way to get the PlusBox to show up is if you have the top listing. So, if you are in a very competitive industry, good luck. Looks like Google has created another way to try to get people to spend more money. The feature is being added as we speak so expect to see it in your account soon.
