People are going online and searching for your services in your city every month. The auto repair long beach example image to the left explains how a search works and what people see. People will find 3 businesses along with a Star rating which shows how well the business is doing based on past customer comments also known as reveiws or feedback. Typically people will call the business which they feel has the best feedback or reviews. In most cases people will try to figure this out by looking at the number of reveiws and the overall Star Rating, then they will read several comments and call the business of their choice. To compete in Google Local Maps, your business has to show up in the 3 pack with a good Star rating. Local Maps Optimization has to be accomplished for a business to show up in the top 3 positions.
When a potential business patron searches on Google for your product or service with a location identifier, say a town or a city, that is exactly when Google’s Local Map will appear.

It gives your Star Rating, phone number and exact location with directions to local searchers looking for your product or service.
The factors that Google takes into account when deciding the Google Maps Ranking results is a closely kept Google secret. Additionally, to make sure that the secret variables that determine the ranking order remain a secret, Google is constantly changing and altering the requirements that determine the postion of the businesses.

Get Google Reviews
Having positive reviews for your business helps with Google Maps Ranking and helps to win new patrons for your business. The higher your reviews Star rating is the higher your authority is among your competitors. People will call the best business or the business with the highest authority in the market place that they can find. Think about it, don't we all do that?

Reviews that violate the policy may be removed.
