    G Local Listings?


    What's the deal with local listings on google? Are they sandboxed as well. Reason I ask is that my CitySearch contact told me that they guarantee immediate local listings with each account. Sounded curious to me, considering the sandbox.

    Well, that might be true because local results are returned from local directories / yellow pages. Can someone please correct me if I'm wrong?

    No that's right. Local directories & yellow pages are big contributors to G's Local results. I suggest you also put your address on yur site (also a good customer service move & builds trust).

    Take a look at your competition that does appear in the local SERPs and the list of references. Then see what you can do to get listings on those sites.
