    When you say Google maps listing do you mean you want to get listed in the "local pack" on top of the regular listings for a local business like "dentist Las Vegas" or something like that? If so you need to get citations and submit to quality local directories like Yelp, Local.com etc

    Sorry if its too late to post. Apart from title,description,category. There are few other things that impact the results . the listings should be verified. Verified listings have better chances to top than unverified listings. Also the important keyword facilitator is the listing website URL. The closer the words in the url to the desired keyword, the faster it is to rank top for that keyword.

    Try citations, and contextual backlinks TO your map page. Choose keyword+ city as anchors. Also sprinkle in some brand keywords too.

    Good luck-

    affarmy,
    So you send backlinks to your Google+ page or page in the website that has the map?
