Google is introducing a program called “Lets Put Our Cities On The Map.” This new portal Get Your Business Online is like Facebook’s Blueprint and Learn How sites that were launched this week. It proffers resources to business owners and potential partners to help them get online or correct and complete their online presences.

Each user who visits it, will see a localized version of the site based on IP detection. Apart from FAQs, videos and other information, Google has also invited business owners to search for themselves and then tells them whether their listings are present and up to date. If it is incomplete, it asks businesses to update their information.

Google is also offering a free domain and hosted website (for a year) for those who are not online at all, through Startlogic. Consistent with its AdWords reseller strategy, Google is also trying to reach out to local chambers of commerce and other organizations locally to assist in the effort of getting business data into Google:

“We’re also forming partnerships with local organizations—like chambers and small business development centers—and equipping them with free trainings and customized city materials to run workshops just like the one Marieshia attended in Garland. These local partners know the challenges for local businesses more than anyone—and they recognize the value of getting businesses online.”
