    Greenleader,

    I'm not really sure I understand your question but I'll try and answer anyway. Google places is not really correlated with your website. It stands by itself and Google serves these listing to local searchers. If your business listing is not relevant to their query AND their location, it will not show up. The Pagerank of your pages on your website or your domain authority have nothing to do with it.

    Here are some good tips on optimizing your places page,

    Best,

    Thanks, I thought i didn't have to be clear enough.

    I search for "hotdog vienna" and google serp shows 3 normal results + 7 "google places" results. If there are more than 8 hotdog stands in vienna, what is the criteria it sorts it by ?

    That actually isn't true anymore the website holds a lot of authority over Google Places now days but doesn't make it impossible to rank in Google Local with no website
