Google City ExpertsGoogle has quietly launched a new local program called Google City Experts. They announced it on their Google Local New York Google+ page.

In short, it gives those who are active Google Maps reviewers, i.e. users with at least 50 high quality reviews, and at least 5 reviews in the current month, special perks like event invitations, custom swag, special access to contests and more.

You can apply to be a "Google City Expert" over here.

Google said those that are accepted get access to:

  • Access to fun, exclusive events in their local areas
  • Free custom swag
  • Special online recognition

I guess this will help encourage good reviewers to review more.
