    HAHHHAHA a guy comes into a loan mod office today that i work with and was speaking with my friend (the owner of the company) and was telling him how he was going to put him on the top of google for specific keywords..even ones that are very hard to get SERP's for. So i nicely asked him (without telling him that i am fluent in the SEO language) how he intended on doing that. His reply was by using GOOGLE PLACES. Ummmmm not for nothing but how could someone charge for that lol??? Anytime you search for a keyword that you in google places for doesnt that instantly put you on top of google places??????

    Is there a way to market your google place position for different keywords????

    i do sales for a friend of mine, one of his companies specialties is getting businesses ranked in the top spots in google places, he can even get A spot for competitive keywords, he ranked a DUI lawyer in miami, the customer was in the 7th or lower spot. 97% of ppl do searchs online. now most searches on smart phones only show google places listings. I truely believe it can create revenue for businesses if they aren't already at the top spots it will make a difference. we have yet to lose a client so they feel the same. yes there is a way to market your GP for different keywords

    You're wrong. Being in it doesn't put you at Letter A. Or even in the 5/7/10 pack...you need to optimize your places page like anything else.
