Google Maps recognizes the most active reviewers on Google+ Local and Google Maps and designates them Local City Experts. I am often asked: What is a Google Plus Local City Expert?
You must have 50+ quality reviews completed and be actively adding a minimum of 5 new reviews each month, then register here.
Google City Experts get access to awesome events in their area, #GoogleSwag, special online recognition, and access to the (private) Google City Experts Community.
The Google City Experts program is only available in select cities. To see if it is in your city please visit the GCE FAQ.
Update July 16, 2014: City experts launched a new site today to recruit new GCEs:
