How do you get Google to see google places citations?
You don't need to do anything, google will find them. You just have to be patience.
im trying to find the some answer, input appreciated
Build more local inbound links. Not simply the general link building tactcs to your website. You need to mention your local business address with URL. And then share via social media.
So automatic you'll get some share and likes too. And then You can develop via reviews, local directories too.
Then, google will cache all strong inbound links that show trust. You need to update to your google place pages too. Within 10-20 days you'll see some improvement.
Verify your address via g+
Build website and claim other social profiles
Get positive reviews for your business
Rank and Bank
Gooogle seems to "index" the citations much slower than links. Here is a pretty old post but maybe it can be of help:
It isn't that they aren't indexed as fast, it is the local algo is updated in less intervals than the regular organic.
Ping the citation, drop it off at indexkings, use pingler, go to linkcollider.com, buy some tokens, and pay for shares, tweets, tumbles, and stumbles to the citation for a week.
has anyone has any suggestion on how to get the business confirmed quickly it seems to be taker now several weeks
not really, everyone needs to wait that time
I guess you will need to wait the regular time
All you need is patient.
Google's local index is told to update every 30-60 days, and in practice, that seems about right. Maybe a little closer to 60-90 though. Unlike organic, you can't build a link today and expect to see movement in the serps. Won't happen. As I understand it, if the directory is worth its weight, Google will index it quickly. From there, it seems like it sits in a Q, waiting for the next index update before being credited to your listing. So ya, patience. But don't sit on your ass, be building quality inbound links, gathering reviews, and building more citations. Good luck!
