I am a noob and want to get some information on google places SEO. I am doing this for a plumbing company that needs to be rank one in the city they are located. Any information or help would be great. You can PM me and we can talk over Skype. I am capable of doing the work I just need the information on how to do it. *edit* - Skype name = chad.anthony.lozano , I cant PM because I don't have 15 posts. >< What I do know: 1. Places ranks you based on good and bad reviews. 2. Rank based on how well your place is constructed (pictures, videos and fully detailed places page. 3. Location is also a factor. 4. It takes reviews from other sites like yelp and dexknows and puts them in the "more reviews" column. They are currently at the letter "H" which is 8th in their local search.
