    I've noticed that in some terms I'm ranking there's a LOT of Google Places slots in the first page.

    How does one aim at ranking into these Google Places slots? Are there strategies I can use to try to get into there?

    Do you have a legitimate office address or business address for each website/set of keywords or have access to a friend/family's address that you can share?

    If you do, setup a google places listing and optimise it and you'll rank for those keywords + places listing

    Yeah, there's a physical location I can use.

    How do you "optimise" for Google Places though... is there anything in particular I can/should do?

    Yes you do need to optimise for GP, but I don't have enough time to go over it here as it could take hours :)

    The offline section on BHW is full of information, check out the following threads and pick up one of the GP pdf's that are shared on here:
