Google Places or Maps in SERP...Where are they?
Is Google phasing out, discounting, or otherwise requiring more deliberate search actions for Google Places (Maps, Local Business, etc) results.
Just a couple of months ago, every time I searched for anything, I was presented with a Map and the "7 box" illustrating nearby search results.
It seems like since "Google Instant" was released, the Google Places or Maps results only show up if I perform a Custom Search.
Can anyone shed some light on this?

All the top places from my local competition seem to be stuffed with keywords. I keep hearing how bad this should be, but in practice it still seems to work. I had a big jump earlier in the year when I added keywords, though I have gradually slipped down again.

Does anyone know if it is possible to put Alt Text on the uploaded images in Google Places.
If it is possible, can you please explain how you do it.

I spent the other night going through half the list to put my business on those listings. We do business locally in Los Angeles and already have already had some out of state calls today. Very good tips for these links!

Local SEO Needs Local Popularity
Well, my account manager at Centex Technologies Tx also emphasizes on popularity at all local communities and business directories. This I believe helps Google to know that a particular business is relevant in a particular area.
