    I have many keywords and some are showing in Google Places and but in organic. So, is it possible to get the same keyword ranking in google places and in organic or not. Google showing only one ranking whether in Places or in Organic.

    If you have some proof, please show me. Thanks

    Ive looked into this I don't think it is possible it always looks like it's either one but not both. Could be wrong though...

    It's not either/or necessarily, but local vs. organic are almost completely different. One dangerous thing some people are doing is hiring out-of-country SEO's and they build backlinks to sites that are not local. Local business may rank well organically, but they are "nowhere" in the local results. Conversely, Andrew Shotland has a blog post about telling Google that he services clients that are not local, and he then lost his high Google Places ranking (Now Google+ Local).

    The "middle ground" is held by franchise businesses, which individually may service local customers, but collectively are regional or national. Think Wal-Mart.

    My sense is that if a business wants to rank well both organically and locally, they are going to need to do at least 3X, maybe 10X the amount of backlinking in order to overcome Google's either/or conundrum. Good question. No "proof". You won't find any. This is all cutting edge.
