    Hi,

    Title probably doesnt make much sense..

    But does anyone know or have advice on how to rank for local Trades.. page 1...

    For example

    "Plumbers in London" search

    will show the first several ranks as the company name, number, and there location/google places?? before listing any websites

    Yeah it's just simple local seo. You have to create a google places/+ location. Look up local seo. If you're still lost just PM me I can give you a quick run thru.

    If you use the search function you'll find a really long post i made about UK Google Local ranking and citations.

    I can't bothered to write it out again, it's way too long.

    I believe you need to connect a Googl+/location thing in order to show up on those listings.

    More time consuming then having anothers use the search function.

    that's how local seo works... many physical businesses that need seo rely on the proximity of the searcher to their business when certain keywords are put such as "plumbers in london" to appear. Basically create a google places etc and do normal seo work

    yes i do have the google plus places set up.. i just wondered what determines the rank of the places positions? i.e can you build links for google places listings? or will that not work?
