Place Optimization: Sample Place SEO

With the advent of Google Place Search, won’t the practice of Place SEO soon follow?

Pounding away at national and local online marketing for longer than I care to remember, it now appears my work hasn’t been in vain.

A quick check of several other keywords relevant to my business produced similar results.

As an added bonus, my expanded paid and organic place results occupy roughly 50% of the available screen real estate above the fold.

From a marketer’s perspective, it looks like everything has fallen into place – the right place.
