    I've done many research and learned that you must add business address to local directories but the problem is most of these directories you must pay to be listed. I've looked at my competition they were in a lot of paying directories. Is there other strategy can use to be ranked locally. I have scrape box and GSR in my position but I don't know if that will help.

    Do you have any citations? If not use this tool:whitespark.ca/local-citation-finder/. Sign up for the free trial, enter a competitors phone number in the user interface and it will give you their citations. Sign up and list your business with the EXACT same details throughout all the websites.

    Citations are the way to go buddy. The post by Ztak07 has a great tool. Use that to figure out what citations your competition has and just get those.

    Sign up for Google local directories, they send something through the mail to confirm the business location.

    edit: You may actually be able to phone verify as well, can't remember.

    after adding the local business, try to add few reviews from complete different Gmail accounts and Google+ the listing and share it. It will do the increase needed.

    If the page is indexed or has been crawled chances are Google already sees it. All a citation is is your businesses Name, address and phone. I'll let you get creative with this

    It can also help to build some juice to your profiles. Use your citation info or the name of the citation location as text links. Ex: Bob's boob shack street address or the phone number or site location etc.
