Google Places don't like 08 numbers


To be towards the top of a Google search without paying for ads or paper click you need to sign up for Google Places. To do this you need a telephone number. Google does not like 08 numbers, i.e. 0800/0845/0844. If you already have one of these - why not purchase a virtual local number (01/02 numbers) to put there instead?
We found this today at Lucidica:
Tip 6 – Get a local number: Google Places doesn’t like non-geographical numbers if you have an 0844, 0845, 0870 or 0800 number you are going to be a step behind. If you’re based in London get an 020 number, Birmingham a 0121 number.
