    This is my claim. I've done many of these and got them verified all over the USA... passed verifications from live humans calling from Google over in India. G+ local/Google places will go live on maps but never optimize to 7box. Who here has submitted a biz for Google + Local and actually got it in the 7box within the past few months? What type industry did you get it in? roofing, dentist, flower shop/ what? -Nobody in this forum....From what i see its possible get approved/with a verification phone call to the owner and go live... but never will they optimize to the 7box anymore. Can i get a consensus from u all? This is one of the hottest services in SEO...must be tons of u offering Gplaces/G+ local optimization. All real local industries are dead for this: roofing, dentists, plastic surgeons, lawyers, contractors, and so on...

    To clarify- Im not talking about an old listing you verified 2 years ago that moved up... i mean a new listing (last 6 months we'll say), verified by a real G human phone call from india (how they verify now)... and after a couple months u see it listed in the 7box? -THIS DOESNT HAPPEN ANYMORE. i dont think G puts any newer biz listings (6 months to a 1 year) in the 7box anymore. This is my experience in the USA. It's done... Dead... Fake delusions of grandeur from G. We're passing the verification calls from a live G human over in India, they go live on Gmaps, have some decent citations, but never are the listings showing up in 7 box.

    Dont chime in with local optimization tips/theories... save it. If u personally have got 7box results in the past 6 months from newly verified listings tell the rest of us about it... Not one REAL person will step forward. It's done and Google Places optimization for 7box results is dead.

    There it is folks, the 7 box listings are permanent and no new businesses will ever be added to it again. You heard him.
