    I never really tried to rank a G00gle places page. My Dad is in real estate and I want to get him ranked higher. Is it through citations and regular backlinks?

    Try citations submission, because google ranks you more if it finds your address on many places. Now how to target keyword then try to use your keyword in link building process as same as we do for organic rankings!!!

    Look for a Google Places Cheat Sheet. I'm sure there's still a thread with it. Awesome guide for how to rank.
