    I have been on a losing streak lately. My Google Local business listings do not show up in the top 7, "A-G" What gives?

    When I had this problem before I would just repost the listing up to 3 times changing the text slightly and then it would show up. Now it is not working. Is Google making so you have to be a Certified PArtner or something to get into the 7 box?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    you usually will only show up if your address is actually in the city you are searching on. Plus Google is randomly checking listings to be sure they are correct. Basically you cant spam the local listing anymore.

    As I indicated in a prior post, I had about 8 listings that all got shut down. I'm thinking about setting up different accounts for each listing.

    This is your second thread on this issue...you are basically asking "how do I rank well on Google Places?" without looking around this website. There is A TON of information out here to answer all of your questions. You are obviously getting your work flagged because you don't know how to cover your tracks well enough or you are overdoing keywords, company names, etc. Either way, there is plenty of info to help you out. Hit the "SEARCH" button!
