    I've maxed out my places ad with crazy keywords.
    I've completed the profile in every way, pictures, videos, etc.
    I have a tag ad running.

    I have more links with more do flw and more PR.

    WTF IS THE SECRET TO GOOGLE TOP POSITION?

    I also have google maps cash and 10 box finder but don'y want to invest the time if this strategy is out the door...


    Thank you in advance brothers... U rock!

    My website was always under the maps results but now the map has been moved to the side...Yay now i'm at the top of the organic results. so for me it's great that the map is at the side because i do not have to was time or money buying a skype telephone number.. also it is easier to dominate the organic than the maps..

    First off, it sounds like you've put in a lot of effort into getting yourself going. I would be happy to help see what's going on if you pm me and also include a link to your listing. All I do is Google Places and local seo, so I bet I can probably point you in the right direction.:D

    I can't get a listing. It's not giving me an option to verify it my phone. Only by postcard. Can anyone give me advice, how to get around it. (I run a cleaning service, and do not have an office)

    Holy crap, I was the OP...LOL talk about an old skool bump...

    In my experience unless your business and established it will now require the postcard verification. This was a change as people were manipulating multiple cities with no actual locations. One of my clients I had established actually got a call from google to ask about specific building around our address. They were cracking down on that shit a while ago...

    Google Places has changed a lot in the last months. None of the old techniques seems to be working. That's why you need to work some new strategies to strengthen your Google Places listing. Reviews are important (but Google's algorithm is not displaying every posted review) so you'll have to deal with them. Also, work con citations, this may me the key. Finally, add the mapping code to your site.

    Hope this work for you guys.

    Google Places may be a pain in the butt... and still we need it. Rock on!
