If you work in Local SEO, you might run into situations where you want to find the Place ID for a business. Unfortunately, the process of finding a place ID can be confusing and frustrating.

You have to go looking for it in the source code, which can be very time-consuming. Don't even get me started on how long it can take if you are on mobile.
