    Hey guys,
    I'm doing some local SEO and trying to implement rank and rent, but having this problem. When I type in my keyword ("[city] [service]", ~10 searches/month), I see this My Business box pop up of my competitor. He is #4, I am #6. How do I eliminate it or what else should I do?
    Since I do rank and rent (rank high, call up business, show their website on top of mine using iframe), I can't register my own My Business page, because I don't have an address in that place, so can't verify. Any tips?

    Get a PO box close to the center of the city. UPS store for example. Then very the listing and chose not to display your location or choose the option that you do service out of your office.

    Clever, will check & try. Hope there is a way to receive letters scanned digitally, because I'm ~4500 miles away from that city.

    If I'm #6, he is #4, will his box still be showing up until I outrank him in serp? Or neither will have that box visible?

    Ok, it turns out it's not as easy to remotely rent PO box and receive that letter. Will still try though, but how can I beat him in other way?
