Google+ LocalLast night, Google's Jade Wang announced in the Google Business Help forum that they have made an update to the area businesses can maintain and update their Google Places / Local Listing in Google Maps.

Jade said the changes are around the "verification and editing experience for users managing pages in Google+ (in the Local Business or Place category)."

Specifically what was changed includes:

  • better status updates that tell business owners if their edits are pending or rejected
  • progress bar to help business owners fill out the most essential information
  • can now add categories via Google+
  • updated look and feel (tell us what you think!)

Mike shared a screen shot of the new editor:
