How to Top Perform as Local Guide on Google Maps

I am a proud Google Maps Local Guide on Level 5 and still aiming higher... Minutes ago, I received complimentary mail from Google thanking and alerting me of my top performances in 2019. This is cheering and already serving as encouragement to do more in 2020.

Here are some of the stuffs you can do to be a top performer as Google Map's Local Guide, according to Google themselves:
1. Rate & Review
2. Take Photos, share them too
3. Add a Place, a new place that is missing on Google Maps
4. Edit a place, some places are wrongly named
5. Answer Questions, Google asks a lot of them
6. Check the Facts, with your superior knowledge of places, events and all

Why must you do these? 
...influence how millions of people navigate the world
Any reward?
Yes. You earn points, levels, badge, other perks and travel opportunities to the US.
