    Hi guys, my first post. Here's the thing, I got a friend of mine, he is a hairdresser, and he told me if I could help him with a little internet marketing.
    He is part of a franchising, but he wants to have a site and be visible on google for some keywords. Made a little research and noticed that for that keywords the only and first results on google are results on google maps, no sites nor blogs, the only competitor site is a little site on the 4° place after 6-7 results from google maps and with no blacklinks or social signals at all. I think that this is good, no competitors at all, if we make a site and we promote it with a seo and social network campaign we should obtain great results, right? The first spot should be ours, or am I mistaking?
    Also, if I search the frachising name, the first site I find is obviously their company site, and looking with some tools it has 950 backlinks, but all of them are low power links on blogs (the same blog, most of them are on the same blog), I think that I could rank this new site for the same keywords or even for the very same franchising name at least in the 2° position after the franchising site, right?
    Google maps results can be easily obliterated with a site and seo? Thanks in advance for the replies.

    Everything lies in your knowledge, power and application. No can give you guarantee for first page ranking within a stipulated period of time, maybe an estimate, YES but not guarantee.

    Yes I know, I was asking if google maps results can be beaten with a site and good seo. What do you think?

    IMHO, you should try to rank with the Google place listing. Much easier and faster this way.

    Uhm, considering that google places results always show first when you search a keyword followed by a city name, it should be preferable. Any hint for ranking on google places?

    1) Optimize the listing (include the exact kw in the title + fill out everything in the form).

    2) Once active and the modifications updated on the maps, backlink to the google place url just like you'd backlink to a website.

    3) Rank :)

    He needs Local SEO, a lot easier to accomplish and will provide him with the results he's looking for.

    This is definitely one of those situations where you should be looking at building up then local SEO side of things in the interim, and working the main site in the long-term. Local SEO is going to be faster here though, as others have mentioned already.

    Take a look around at some of the stickied and popular threads here... there are some great guides to local rankings.

    although this is not my problem, when reading the question post and you all answers I know a lot of useful things. Maybe I will apply them someday.

    You would tie in Google Plus with Google Maps..... And use a very direct approach -
    Hairdress (Keyword) + Location ..... An example of this would be to google - Responsive Web Design Delray Beach - you would see a map listing on the third organic ranking - in addition a Web 2.0 Property of ours is 7th... Of course you may see different things but its there... For you I would say build out Citations ...
