    Hey. I've decided to do a rent a page for my area. I've been researching various trade niches but I've come across this problem

    For the keyword {big city+ niche}-- there are a lot of google places to compete with
    for the keyword {smaller city+niche}--the competition is was easier but there are still about 3-6 google places

    I want some suggestions. Should I still go for it? Is there a chance that I can out do these google places?

    I was also thinking of putting my website on "google places"
    my idea is registering a local number
    Then forward the calls to the client, and use my house as an address for the GP...what do you think? is it feasible?

    Check for exact match, helps make it really easy to rank. I have outranked google places quite easily thanks to an exact match domain.

    It is possible to rank above the 7 pack if you know what your doing depending on how competitive the market is.

    I would highly advice staying away from dealing with registering your own address for Google Places.. your going to run into a lot of headache down the road. Google is smart enough to find out that the address does not match up with the business address. Not to mention having to change the information if client leaves etc.

    Not worth the trouble in my opinion!

    You can try leasing an office suite number (for mail purposes only) - also called a virtual mail box - for around $20/m.

    I can get one in the main cities here.

    Then you could just set up like 5 different GPlaces under the same private post box address, assuming that would work - and the post boxes would be in the correct city! Just an idea.
