    I want to know your results. this is a survey to see if im being too negative... It seems to me like major local industres... roofing, contracting, etc... the Gplaces submissions aren't moving up or appearing on the front page any more... ive submitted, fully verified new addresses, new websites, and nothing is getting in the 7box like it used to. As if their dead... the same 7 listings for a couple years. Organic rankings still changes somewhat, but even then getting on the front page for something local like roofing seems very tough now... its Yellow pages , BBB, yelp or some directory, or the same old site that has been there for years... Roofing is extremly competitive so maybe Google knows this and forces only ppc options for certain queries like roofing +city and caters to bbb, yelp, yellowpages cause they spend money on ppc? It makes business sense, they know roofers got money to spend on advertising and they cater to big business directories that are spending money with them. I need a win... What has been your experience with Gplaces been recently? What local industry did you submit? How long til it showed up?

    read that post, I believe there is a waiting game now for organic seo, but Google places is separate from organic rankings...
