Google Places Adds New Features To Its Bulk Location Management Tool

google-local-places-featuredGoogler Jade Wang announced yesterday Google Places is rolling out new features to its bulk location management tool.

According to the announcement, the new features will include a “Status” column that lets users know if a Map location is live, unverified, has errors, data conflicts, is a duplicate, or if it is pending review.

The “Conflicts” interface is being updated as well:

The updated [conflicts] interface will show you details on how a location page might differ on Maps/Search results versus what’s in your dashboard. We’ll show you what is live on Google, and which field is different from what’s in your dashboard. From there, you’ll be able to take action.

Wang said Google is also editing time frames with the intent of improving the speed data goes live on Google Places, and included the following screen shot of the new dashboard interface:
