    I am not even sure if it is called google places but I would like some info on local rankings.

    1. Which is the best guide/tutorial/pdf on google local seo?

    2. Why is it that when i search web design [my area/my city] then i get no local listings but when i search other terms like florist [my area/my city] or other such terms then i get local listings first and then the regular listings.


    Thanks,
    Ashish

    1) Have not found a good tutorial, but I would get The SmallBiz theme for wordpress https://www.expand2web.com/smallbiz-theme/.
    With a subscription to the theme you get local seo resources and a knowledgeable community of Seo professionals to ask questions.
    2) Is location set on your google account?

    Get 50 citations with 100% matching info for your local biz then blast the citations, not the site (!), with your pbn. Boom, ranking #1 in google places in 1-2 months.

    How do you "blast the citations, not the site (!), with your pbn"? I have a PBN, how is this done?

    You simply link to the citation page url from your pbn.
