    Dear Folks!
    Need your help to rank my hotel website in the local snack pack of Google.

    I have optimized my website and added all the information to the google listing. The listing is having nearly 200 reviews with 4-star average rating. However, other hotels having fewer ratings and reviews are having a good rank.

    Is there any other strategy to follow?

    if its a new listing you need to wait to let google index everything and let the ranking start to work

    Make the GMB maps, Local authority stack, location targeting profiles with embed map locations, some high authority guest posts.

    All these will increase the gmb listing rankings.

    Its a Google Entity Stack, in which the money site gets the links from the Google properties like Google doc, form, slide etc. And every Google property is them embed in the Google site, and Google site also contains the money site url, which in turn passes all the link juice to the money site and increases the authority.

    Local SEO is a highly effective form of online marketing. It allows businesses to promote their services to local customers in search engines at the exact moment they're searching for your type of business.

    Nice.. however, one trouble i am having is understanding which link to use for my banklinks to my GMB.

    Do i build them to the goo.gl link ?

    Give a variations of links like bitly shorten links, naked Urls, with anchors etc.

    I think Google shorten links are already closed now

    For Local SEO listings, you might want to check your presence on relevant Local Directories and your Google My Business settings. This has a significant impact on your local SEO rankings, as well as your Google Maps rankings/rich snippet

    Use a geo tagging software (GeoSetter).
    Find the GPS coordinates of the hotel.
    Alter any picture with GPS coordinates before posting it in GMB. You can also spam pictures with brand and keywords.

    Could I take a look? I can even audit the site for free, and give you tips on what you can do on page and off page.
    I used to do Local SEO (Now moved to rank and rent because it's less mindfucking) and I was consistently getting #1, obviously, there was not that much competition that knew SEO especially technical SEO.
