does the lack of a schema category for  web designers mean that they will not show up in a google 7 pack?

Google plus/local is a bit of a mess and Martins excellent article gives a good overview of the problems
 
Help with the problems setting up Google+ Local and Google+ Business Pages.
 
I teach around the state and am seeing more and more problems with small brick & mortar businesses trying to understand the correct way to set up a Google+ Local Page, a Google+ Business Page and Google Authorship (if they also have expert advisors on-site). I am looking for who to contact at Google+ to get them to take the time to produce better quality education and also who to contact at Google+ is someone is having a problem. 

If you own the business should you use a personal gmail account to set up their Google+ Local account? If they have someone that works with them and they want them to set up the Google+ Local account what type of email should be used so they don't have problems in the future. 

If they set up a Google+ Local then a Google+ Business Page what get them to merger together? Most people find the current Google+ help not helpful. 

I am hearing of people trying to do the right thing and changing one thing on any of these then their Google+ Local is brought down and they have no idea what they did wrong or how to contact someone at Google+.

If Google wants people to do thing the right way they have a responsibility to explain how to do it correctly in a clear way. Not more cute videos that say nothing but clear instructions that a small business owner can understand, from Google! 

Issues:
Google+ Local
Google+ Business pages
Google+ Personal Profile 
Google+ Authorship 

Request is just clear instructions on the right way to set these up by Google+ and if someone had a honest problem how to get help. 

Welcome others comments. I love Google+ and want us to keep it good and honest. Please also share this and add to it if you have seen challenges as well. If you know of any good official Google resources that explain this clearly share that as well. 

Thanks

I studied at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels at Salford Business School and I’d like to say how much I enjoyed the Experience. The Course I entered was challenging but extremely rewarding with an emphasis on practical real-world skills I find increasingly useful as I enter the world of self-employment. Salford Business School gave me the confidence and skills to attempt new challenges and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others
