As the worlds largest search engine and online mapping service, Google has a lot to teach us about the world. In fact, there are so many interesting things Google has to teach us that it’s hard to know where to start. But one of the most important things Google teaches us is about location data. The Google Places API lets you get information about addresses and businesses in your area. You can use this information to find information about restaurants, stores, and more.
Why did it change?
One of the most common complaints when it comes to SEO is that it’s too complicated, time-consuming and confusing.
In this article, we’ll take a look at how search engines are changing and how these changes can affect your search engine optimization strategy. I’ll also show you how you can use these changes to your advantage in order to help your business grow with digital marketing.
What are the benefits of the new Google Places API?
If you’re a business owner, hopefully you already know the benefits of Google Places.
The new Google Places API makes it easier than ever to find these opportunities – and allows you to make changes as needed.
Here are some of the features that the new API offers:
– More data available in one call
– Strategy recommendations based on your location
What are the disadvantages of the new Google Places API?
It’s not easy to find the answer to that question, but from what we can tell, the new Google Places API is a downgrade.
The old Places API would let businesses add their current address, but the new Places API doesn’t. The old Places API also allowed for more advanced features like geocoding and listing distances, whereas now it only allows for listing locations.
Google’s decision to do away with these features might be due to an overall lack of demand for them. While they’re a crucial part of many business owners’ workflows, Google has said that they are looking into alternative methods of capturing customer information and managing listings.
For now, it seems that businesses should consider using the legacy version of the Google Places API until the issue is resolved.
