    I'd imagine the same rules apply to getting page rank in any other listings. Good keywords, good content updated on a regular basis, and good backlinks would certainly be a good way to start.

    You can search Google maps and find local businesses there. All you need to do is to find some local businesses without identity and put your website link there. It takes up to 2 days changes to be approve once approved you will be notified about it - you are top in the list!

    What do you mean by local hosted sites?

    I rank #1 for two important keywords and I can't even find my local listing in Google Places...

    After creating a Google local listing you should quality backlinks for your Local listing. Promote the local listing through social bookmarks and blog commenting. And you'll get your desired result.

    By promoting your Google Places listing on a blog comment...isn't that spamming?
    I'm even confused about the social bookmark recommendation...I can't place social bookmark icons on the Google Places listing so would I put them on my website and somehow link them to my external Places listing?

    That is a sneaky tactic, and the competitive listings need to be mail verified..

    Promoting Google Local listing url through blog comments is not spamming. Do not put the Local listing url directly in the comment. Place it with a keyword that you think may help a visitor to find your business.

    Bookmark your Google local listing url though social bookmarking sites with do-follow attribute. These bookmarking sites will generate do-follow back links for your Local listing url. You can receive more visitor and your Local listing url will improve it's rank.

    Ranking in Google local listing is same as global listing...
    There are very few factors which affect may affect your rankings in Google local listing
    - Citations
    - Geographic distance of user and your business place
    - Geographic distance of business place from city center
    - Visibility of your listing on other local websites like local classifieds and local directories

    @wondingcd and @C.Rebecca

    So basically ranking higher in Google Places is a matter of link building. Your link building strategy should shift from promoting your website to promoting your Places page. Is this correct? If so, can you show me some examples of where you are promoting your Places page?
