How to get perks and benefits from Google maps / google local guide benefits / all about Google Local Guide

As a google local guide, you earn points when you share reviews, photos, and knowledge on Google Maps. Those points lead to higher levels of the program, as well as benefits like early access to Google features and special rewards from partners. At Level 4, you also unlock your first Local Guides badge, which helps your contributions to places get noticed.

For suppose all of a sudden, you got to go to a new place, to get your work done and you don’t know any friends or relatives in that city. What is the first thing you do? open google maps and search for places you want to go and check for the directions and details like is it accessible by public transport or by private transport and then you would be visiting the place.

Did you ever think, who did all those work?

Who uploaded all those photos of the places? Who wrote the reviews of places?

These works are done by local guide. It’s a voluntary program, launched by Google to add information to Maps and edit the information which is already present and is wrong.
