Google Places is being replaced by Google+ Local. If you’re wondering what will happen to those Google Places reviews you’ve worked so hard to get, don’t worry – they aren’t going anywhere! For now, the change mostly impacts individuals that have given reviews (vs. the businesses receiving them). If you’ve written reviews for other businesses, they will be attributed to, “A Google user” until you login to your Google+ page and claim them. Google+ will also allow you to decide which of your reviews to make public vs. private.
