    Hey guys

    I live in the UK and I'm dealing with a lot of the SEO for the company that I work for as well as web design and marketing and noticed recently that Google searches have become more inclined to find local companies ahead of the ones that may be further away but can have better SEO in place.

    I was wondering how you guys with businesses are coping with it and what practices you're putting in place to ensure you're still up there. My boss had an idea to purchase PO Boxes, or renting a 'ghost' office in selected cities so that we can add the addresses to our Google Places and should someone search for our targeted terms in a different area than where we're based, we should still pop up to them.

    Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated :)
