Google Places?


Recommended Posts

I need a little techie thinking on this:


I'm in Europe and I've been helping out a friend registering his bar in Bangkok on Google Places. He's not technically adept (even email seems to be a challenge at times) so I can't really expect much help.


I can set it up but he's using a personal mobile for his business line - which means there's no landlines he wants to advertise. Okay, so in theory Google will mail a postcard with a password, but we've gone this route and he insists that no card has shown up at the bar. So I'm stuck...


Can anyone suggest a way around this? I've never registered a Google Places account but it seems hooked on the idea of validating via the phone. There must be a way around it...

Wow - nothing? What if I had a sexy photo?




Ah, sexy for Illinois.


Seriously, there must be a way to register a business from outside the country..

install a VPN and select a server in the country that you want to be designated as being in when you invoke the VPN.


many vpn services out there. I use strongvpn.com. they have one plan that is 55 dollars a year. if you don't know what a VPN is, read the following... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Private_Network

Skip Google places and just make sure you are on foursquare. Google places here sucks compared to the level of accuracy of foursquare.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
