    So i recently started ranking local keywords, and i noticed that the local service i am targeting displays like 5-7 local companies/businesses map as first results when we search for my targeted keyword. I have an EMD which is already top 20 without much links and also has my countries TLD ,

    Example keyword- Computer repair
    Example domain- ComputerRepair.co.uk

    so my question is - would it be possible for me to outrank the local businesses and get to the #1 in google while those local google map business results appear below me? or google automatically displays local map results at top no matter if you have EMD and very solid backlinks?

    looking forward to replies

    thanks.

    I have done it before. It can be done with strong backlinks. Unless this has recently changed.

    I know it's possible because I've done it.

    Actually I rank number 2 and right below the number 2 spot is the map rankings where I rank number one.

    I think I would credit the rankings due to strong non-spammy BLs and a verified site with Google Maps.
