    Why is it that I'm not ranking in my G business Listing?
    What do I need to do and why is it that I'm not ranking?
    Why is it that another site is ranking so well when their citation is only 14 vs the rest have over 62? Our website are in the first and second page for the same keyword. I have 81 citations.


    Ranking for Google listing:
    1. citation
    2. website rank
    3. reviews
    4. backlinks to citations

    So for my local listing -
    CITATION: close to or more than some of the other 5 who are listed
    Review: Mine is over 20 - more so than the 5 listed combined.
    Website: My website is ranking first two page for the same keyword. Website is as old as if not the same as the other website. Backlinks seems the same too. My websites backlink is over 200 while the guy listed is only 126 per ahrefs
    backlinks to citation: did not check


    Thanks in advance!

    Is your listing verified? Do you have a brick and mortar location? If not, did you hide your address? Do you have a nice long description? Have you maxed out the page with pictures and video and fully filled out all the information they have room for?

    Listing is verified. Yes, brick / mortar. Address is not hidden.

    Just FYI: I have more photos vs 3 of the top 5. I have more video's than the top 4. I have more description words than everyone else in the top 5.

    15 photo in profile - I'll upload more.
    No video - I'll add more.
    Description is three to four sentences - Ill add more.



    Any more suggestions. Thanks for that.

    So $5 per day spending limit?

    Just a website directory is the only one and only company advertising on G00GLE for our area.

    Take a look at the top rankng pages and see if their google plus page has been viewed a lot of times. If they have, go to 10khits.com or some other traffic exchange, and buy some credits and send page views to the page, or use a bot.

    Make sure your description supports the category your business is in.

    10k hit = started that now.

    Reviews - I read about how it looks fishy if the time is so close together. Any thoughts on that? How about if I hit up 7 different review sites in one week period. Will that look fishy to G00GLE?

    I heard hitting the citations with backlinks. Is that good? what type of backlinks? does it have to be related to the niche or can I just hit it up with any cheapo backlinks?

    Get real reviews. nothing fishy about real reviews. You need google reviews for the map box.

    Spam links to your citations if you want, I don't, they are not backlinks.
