Question: How does being a ‘favorite place on Google’ tie into this?
Answer: Google’s favorite places is a new program to promote Google Places. It doesn’t really have any direct SEO implications, which is why I am not very familiar with it. I think it is more like the Yelp posters that Yelp sends out. They are trying to work on the ‘visibility’ of Google Places.
By selecting favorite places, they are encouraging reviews and visibility. If you are in it, I would definitely participate in it. It can’t hurt! Here is a link to more information – http://bit.ly/bB3KlX, but it sounds like you are more expert than I on this topic!
