    How does go about getting in the local 8 pack and then increase from there onward? Say you were at the bottom, how does one get to the top?

    well start off with full 100% detailed listing. make sure your locations are listed on the site, make sure you have tons of local directory citations... before doing google places, bing local, yhoo local... get reviews on those citation pages, like judys book... make sure everything matches. address, name, phone, etc. label your images onsite with local keywords... that will rank it in images.

    Citations, high quality links, links with your address. PBN links will work greatly. Check your competition citations with whitesparks local citation finder.

    Pbn links won't help you rank in the 8 pack. Citations, reviews, makes sure your NAP is always consistent. Get to know Techxan and Andrew Scherer they both have a wealth of information about local.

    inorder to rank local maps you have to rank good in organic as well,then come citations both structered and unstructered and you have to make sure that you nap is consistent all over the places.
