If you are an offline marketer or do any kind of SEO, Social Media, Local Marketing, or Reputation Management work for your clients or yourself, you are going to be doing the *happy dance* along with me when you check out this software. Places Scout has just been released and it’s TOTALLY awesome.. it’s now my new *must use daily* software (it’s even made it to my permanent “task bar” – it’s “That” good): For internet marketers, it’s an absolute must-have tool.

  1. For keyword research (specific to Google Places)
  2. For finding out exactly what you and your competitors are ranking for in Google Places
  3. For monitoring the ups and downs of the rankings
  4. For clearly seeing what the competition is doing (do they have facebook, google plus, how many citations, 3rd party reviews, photos, videos, their business name and address, how they are optimizing their H1 tags, fan page likes, tweets, google buzz, digg, stumbleupon, reddit, delicious)..

Compared to MapPI ($297), Consulting Leads Pro ($997), Power Leads Pro ($997), Power GMaps Pro ($147), GPscraper ($347), etc. it just..towers ahead of them in terms of features, flexibility (drag n drop everything, sort everything, client reports, etc.) and price, and ease of use. I’m really happy that I got onto it straight away, and they are talking about adding so much more to it in the coming months. And the support is fast and friendly. It also works in all of these countries:

  • Australia (YAY!)
  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Canada
  • Bahamas
  • Belize
  • Ireland
  • Jamaica
  • Malaysia
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • South Africa
  • and the Virgin Islands

    Yes the price is $197 now but I agee Places Scout is great, I think the guy who made it has made it his full-time income now so that is good for us because he keeps it updated with the latest Google changes, not like other crap Ive bought.

  2. Seo Ramon says:

    Can definitely attest to this software being totally awesome. I also use it on an almost daily basis.

  3. Val Barber says:

    Hi Penny, I discovered your blog after a Google search for Places Scout. I just want to know whether it’s still being updated now?

    1. Yep, a year later and it’s still my fave software.. price has gone up though but they have added a new Reputation Management module too

  4. Over 1 month later and it’s still my fave piece of software – I use it every single day, several times a day.
