    Hi, I am a realtor in boston - how do I link google places to my website? Karen

      You do that from within Google Places. Although, I think you are asking the reverse-how to link TO google places from your website. Simply grab the URL of your places page (it is under link in upper right in places) and place that link on your site. The menu or footer is a natural place to list it.

    Interesting. Do you have examples of this impacting Google Places listings or providing an additional citation? Seems to make sense though. @trentcarlyle

      We can't provide examples without risking revealing client data. I haven't looked for 'global' examples of this in practice.

    Great SEO tip, I have done this since I first set up local listing on Google about 4 years ago, to be honest I thought at the time it just made common sense but now I see I was far ahead of myself! :-)
