    Hi looking at getting local business ranked, what optimisation steps do you recommend? Ive seen on Fiverr there are Gigs which incoude 350 citations, 5 driving directions etc...

    Also in regards to removals - if i purchase additional GMBs from a vendor, if i use my main URL from my main site is there is a risk to this? Like if Google remove the listings will my URL be on some sort of shit list ?

    Thanks :)

    What happens if you want your business to be part of "GMB", but you don't necessarily want your street address shown on the map?
    Is it possible?

    How do I go about ranking for multiple local keywords for my GMB listing? Is it that description is my only option for that?

    Google ask for address as it verify GMB that have store. If you are hiding address that means you don't have genuine business.
    Only in case of online business Google allows to hide the address.

    Most of the time, businesses with the highest reviews are ranked at the top of a search. The top one normally has 4.9 rating stars. That makes sense to me because that's how a rating system should work.

    But why is that not always the case? Sometimes a business with a lower rating gets the top spot. A 4.2 rating can actually outrank a 4.9 star business. Why is that, and how does the ranking system work?

    Depends not only on reviews but on many things. Google crawlers looks into other places also like directories and social media.

    I won't suggest to create GMB without store location. As Google is serious about fake listings and removing them as in 2018 Google removed more than 3 billion listings.

    Fake GMBs are always targeted by Google and now it's very serious Google is removing many fake gmbs. Yes if Google remove those listings and they have same name as your gmb. Your GMB will be on hitlist.

    No, you can yourself take the pics try that they must be geotagged and 360 images also help which you yourself can create.
