Google pays for local content!

maps_results_logo.gifThere is a new Local Business Referral Program from Google in which independant consultants (i.e. anyone with a computer and internet) gather information on local businesses for listing on Google Maps. Information such as contact, hours, location, etc are uploaded over the web.

The job requires people to sign up through their Google account. Although, you must also have access to a digital camera (to take a photograph of the business), you will receive $10 for each verified listing.

Greater analysis of the move by Google is provided at:
