    there is a local phrase [city] [keyword] that I am working on. The seprs looks like this:

    #1 site
    google places
    me

    what kind of incentive does the google bot need to move me above google places? like what does it look for, why is it not putting me up there?
    I would be happy being #2 I just want to be above places.

    I have been building backlinks but it's not helping. could it be because I dont have a google places account associated with this website? maybe the google bot thinks "this website has no google places, therefore it must not be local"

    backlinks are not helping. I dont know what else to do.

    For local services this is the default google block. I think it's only for mobile search that you get only 1 on the top.

    For desktop:
    #1 site
    #2 site
    #3 site
    Google Local 7 Pack
    #4 site etc

    That being said. The only way you can go above the block is to out compete your competitor in the number 1 position. I would go ahead to check your on page SEO first. If it is fine you will need stronger backlinks to take the number one spot. Hope that helps.

    On-site SEO is the very first thing I would check. There used to be something called a one box, which put your places listing and website above everything else. The way to get that was have your on-site seo for the keyword correct, some local links (if you can get them), and have your backlinks have authority. From multiple domains, multiple websites, multiple types of backlinks, and to keep track of getting your backlinks indexed. I do not think I have to explain the importance of content.

    Are you talking about getting into the Local 7 pack? I am a bit confused understanding what the question Is.
    On second thought, I think you are asking how to put your website organically in front of the local 7 pack?

    I've fought this battle dozens of times. You can *always* win this battle just by building more quality links to your site.

    On desktop, G displays either 0, 1, or 3 results above the local pack.
    On mobile, it's always 1 result above the local pack - which is why if much of the search volume for your KW is by mobile users, going from #2 to #1 can have a massive result. Of course, your site needs to be mobile friendly to stay there - otherwise the bounce rate from mobile users will drop you back to #2 or lower.

    Say you are trying to rank for lawyers in new york Ny. I am sure there are local places to visit or eat at and websites that are already ranking. Chances are those websites are in Wordpress. Get an approved comment on either one. Something like "I ate here and had a great meal. Blah blah. I have a more detailed interview -insert website-". It is something I have found to produce positive results. I cannot say the same for everyone, but it is a very simple procedure.
