    maybe its just me, but i was thinking, instead of having a business pay $500 to $1500 month or whatever your price point is, for doing SEO and getting all the backlinks and content articles written, just to rank UNDER the google places, wouldn't it be worth more to the client to rank above the organic search and have them placed in the TOP 7 Google places, and charge the same amount if not more?

    whats your opnion on this? as far as focusing on google places and basically forgetting about SEO....:)

    Local places listings are a whole new ball game, check out places citations on Google for some more info. For smaller cities it is certainly a lot easier to get ranked up there once you know what your doing, but good luck selling pizza in New York.
