Google Places Import

Google Places import module is a nice module especially if you don’t have the listing available and you want to start filling your site with initial data and encourage users to claim the listing and have it ready for them.


Make sure to have the import scheduled job to configured by adding the following  cronjob

*/5 * * * * cd PATH_TO_YOUR_NSTALLATION && php artisan listing:import

You can create a different number of imports each with different settings, as seen from the screenshot above, for example,

  1. keywords for the listings: for example suchi, seafood, Pizza
  2. Category of the listing: for example restaurants, airports…
  3. The number of images to import.
  4. Max results in imports
  5. Location and distance Radius in KM from the location you specifiy.
