    im not sure if this is the correct place to post this query, mods please move it if necessary.

    i'm totally newbie to google places. from what i've notice, it's dominating some of the local niche area's.

    questions:

    i can see the places results have red and blue balloon with letters? can somebody explain what it is? how did they achive A and BLUE color....cos its the one appearing in the top page.

    google results now in local services are mixed places and websites. will this be the new trend in goole?

    anyone who have success in dominating google places and getting A in the result page?

    thanks for your help....:)

    The blue map peg is a paid advert known as g00gle b00st. To get a red a-g, that is
    free but there are only the seven spots available. Google awards spots based on many factors e.g. Citations, reviews, keywords, completed applications, and many
    other factors that are still under much debate. Then big G puts whoever they want up there. lol
