Answer to Keith’s Corner from June 1st

Keith’s Corner Question of the Day last Friday, June 1st asked Rosemont Media’s friends:

Approximately how many total Google Places listings did Google convert to the new Google + Local forum yesterday worldwide?
A. 80,000
B. 800,000
C. 8,000,000
D. 80,000,000
E. 800,000,000

The correct answer is D. 80,000,000! According to Search Engine Land, “Google Places pages have been entirely replaced by new Google+ Local pages. As of this morning roughly 80 million Google Place pages worldwide have been automatically converted into 80 million Google+ Local pages, according to Google’s Marissa Mayer. It’s a dramatic change (for the better) though it will undoubtedly disorient some users and business owners.”

Thank you to all who answered!
