Google Plus on PlacesTo really no ones surprise, Google seems to be integrating Google + on Google Places search results.

Mike Blumenthal has two different examples of this happening.

Here is one of the examples, as he describes:

On this Places Search example for Cake Box New Jersey you see a correctly integrated profile photo on all of their results from the business's Google Plus page. The image clicks thru to an intermediary search result of a recent post on their Plus Page:

Google Places Google +

Google + is showing up everywhere these days, even in commercials on Thanksgiving day. :)

It only means Google Plus is here to stay. I'd like to think it's out to compete with Facebook. Otherwise, it still has a long, long way to go. As far as I can observe, it's more like a more interactive network for business owners who wish to establish strong relationships with their customers and leads.

The integration of services that Google offers is something that Facebook cannot touch.

This is another reason why businesses shouldn't ignore Google+.  It's important to have a prominent search presence for branded and non branded terms and creating a Google+ profile is one more way to build up your online real estate.
