    Hi there,
    One of my clients want to rank in for a keyword in Google Maps. Like "Aircondition repair service Dallas" (Just a random KW)

    Any guide or tips on ranking in Google Maps ?

    why black hat.. are there black hat methods for this too..? :) cool..

    adding proper categories. add keywords in them. i know some people spam this place with all possible variations of keywords again and again but have seen lately that it doenst work for me. dont know about the rest of you guys.

    like usual optimise the business name and description.
    there is the extra details section. use that again to cover any long tail keywords you are looking for.
    and most important that I would see is to get reviews. get people to post positive reviews for you on you google maps page & rate you as well. make sure you have your main keywords in them.

    another area you could look is optimising your website profile on other review sites. google imports data from other sites also. if you have good reviews on them hopefully they will also ge displayed.
    i just did a search for 'Aircondition repair service Dallas' and noticed that google imports reviews from yahoo, insiderpages, kudzu, citysearch, yelp etc. optimise these pages also.

    this is the way I do it. if anyone has more info do share :)
