Place Pages: Google Gives Everyone A Page On Google Maps

Google announced the launch of "Place Pages" on Google Maps. What this means is that instead of Google showing you a large bubble when you click on "more info" on a business listing in Google Maps, it takes you to a new landing page, with more information.

For example, here is a clean link to my company's listing page: http://maps.google.com/places/us/suffern/executive-blvd/2/-rustybrick-inc

This is not a major change to how it impacts the normal user, but it does create a unique landing page for every business or "place" on Google Maps.

I find it funny how in a WebmasterWorld thread, moderator, Webwork called this:

PlacePages = Wikipedia, with ads.

What do you think?
