Ok, so i have a Google Places listing setup, it has: Correct biz details (obviously) Verified 5 videos 5 images 1 stock category 4 custom categories related to main keyword / search term 3 google reviews 300 local business listings on local directories 5 reviews on each of the top 3 local directory listings Google has picked up all three of 3 of these and listed them on my places page Geo Sitemap uploaded, site is GEO tagged, KML file uploaded Yet, still not close to the 7 pack... I think im on page 6 as we speak. anything more can i do...? Ive just splashed the local directory listings with a few backlinks to possibly increase their popularity, even tried linking to the absolute places URL and getting nowhere.... Pretty competitive niche but there are some pretty average listings above me....Was thinking i should be higher by now...Any help here guys? Local SEO wiz's out there?
