    I've got a lead gen business that does well, but I've read elsewhere that it is possible to get ABOVE the google maps/local without doing local seo/citations.

    Can anyone provide any insight on this?

    thanks!

    There is no magic on Google you need to give some work on the site to be first, you can do other things to get to the top without citations like Articles submission add same content in you site, Related Links field and match more
    I would suggest you try to contact the SEO company to get advice if this is something that imported to you

    I have local clients above the Places results, the most important thing is that the on-page is optimized for multiple geo locations (for example, if you are trying to optimize for New York Chiropractor, create separate pages on the website for 5-6 popular smaller nearby cities with unique content on each). From there I build authority geo-relevant links to the homepage (New York business directories, newspapers etc. you get the idea) and in time the sites I use this strategy almost always rank above the local results.

    You need to do more onpage optimization and offpage optimization..

    The most important thing is the relevancy of your content to your keywords.
