    I want my listing to appear not only one location. Right now when you search main keyword +City +State it shows up, If you search around this town it's not. I see other listing they have big coverage area. Even if you search from next town Main Keyword +next town name +State their listing shows up. Mine only if you search in my town. How can i optimize? I have citations a lot. It's good in my town but how can i optimize, I want people to see my listing around my town. Thank you

    Local SEO requires a few things. You need to get the NAP (Name, address, phone number) and geotag and add the NAP to all photos. You need citations from quality sources related to your niche and or location. You need to optimize you GMB. You need to optimize onsite so it has the GMB categories you're going for. There's a few more but that should keep you busy.

    Devo89's got it. What recently helped us was creating location pages for the cities in which we would like to rank. This at least always got us ranking in top 15 from there we just boosted it with other methods,

    Google is the most popular search engine in the world. They are interested in being the most useful and informative one as well. It is simple to provide Google with accurate information regarding your business. This information will be provided to people looking for what you have to offer. Free. You can also offer coupons, directions, post your hours, list your telephone number and more. The best part is that doing so is completely free.

    I have tried to add another office to my local business to get the map show up underneath the search term rather than to the right, but for some reason Google My Business is a little bit buggy and doesn't let me add another address. Anyone have any experience with this?

    You have to have proof of another location, if you don't actually have another location or if more than 1 is residential then it's against their TOS.

    An optimized Google Places page is a marketing tactic that does not take a lot of effort but can have a very large impact on your searchability.

    Every citation to be submitted with specific location and geotag than local listing will work well.
