I’m now one of Google’s Favorite Places. I’m honored!
Well really, my house is honored as I’m not the Google favorite place, my house / home office is. The information that came with the sticker said that “Delusional Designs” had been looked up 1000+ times on Google Local Listings and 78 people have gotten driving directions to it. Does it count friends that have previously looked up my address to find where I live and how to get over to my place?
Too bad the map on the sticker doesn’t have the real map on it. It’s a map of San Fransisco. Weak!
The sticker is a good idea. It’s double sided with both sides having the weird bar code area. It’s not really bars but it a little symbol that they are going to use in the future for identification of locations. You take a picture of the “bar code” and it checks Google for the business listing. Interesting idea. I would take it that they are trying to match and outdo the “People love us on Yelp” stickers I see everywhere around town. I did hear that Google might buy Yelp!
