Google To Retire Google Places "Tags" on April 29, 2011

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Google announces to their Google Places “Tags” customers that they will be eliminating or “retiring” the new “Tag” feature offered through their Places service.  In an email to customer’s, Google stated that they have decided to focus their efforts on the technologies they expect will yield the most benefit to businesses in the long run.

Today, Google also announced that they are shutting down the ability to create or add more “Tags” to the Places service.  All active tags will however remain in effect until the end of April at no charge.

The billing history will be made available to customers up until July 31, 2011 and the performance metrics will be made available through May 31, 2011.

It appears that Google has decided to stick with the Google Boost advertising program.
