I have tried to get the +Google+ Helper page verified but no luck there...
Perhaps the moon phase was wrong when I applied, or the tide was too low?
:-)  Or maybe the name containing Google is not accepted...

The difference between a Local page and a business page

Google Places (Business listing) was the platform through which businesses could manage their listings in Google’s maps and local search results. Users could leave reviews of the business, to help other users decide whether or not to visit the business.

Google Places became Google+ Local a little while ago, which added a wealth of new features and functionality to business owners, making it a more valuable platform.

Some businesses may still have legacy Google Places pages as Google goes through the migration process. However, these will be moved to the Google+ Local format in the near future. All new Google Places pages will be created in the Google+ Local format.
