    Hi guys,
    Spent a while searching the forums but no real chatter about Google Places.

    Is there any way to increase your rank in Google Places?

    I only need it for a localized area as im doing the SEO for a local business.

    Any ideas guys?

    PM me if you need help. Citations are your friend here. Others have posted lists of citation sources. I do 150+ general citations and then niche citations on top of that (find directories like plumbers, contractors, real estate, insurance, etc.- whatever niche you're in. There's some tricks too- definitely proximity to city center is important, good reviews, KML/Geositemap, and maps from other users boost the listing.
