After reading this post and an article from Adam Steele (http://www.leanmarketing.ca/stop-spraying-and-praying-understanding-local-results/) I did the exercise for a couple of keywords I want a client to rank for in order to understand if they're ranking based on organic or local factors.
After searching in Google, Google maps and AOL I found that this search is mostly based on local factors but my client does not appear on local results. I checked some of the competitors that appear in the first places of the 7 pack and found that most of them are not even verified, don't have much content and only have a couple of reviews. I have optimized the places account and create citations for this client whatsoever I don't get local results.
What do you think is the reason for this? Some on-site optimization would help me get better local rankings?
Thank you so much for the quick response.
The exact keyword I'm looking is: Auto repair Long island ny and my client is Marbren Tire company and this is the Google place profile: https://plus.google.com/111770214481211027010/about?hl=en
It would be really helpful if you can help me identify the reasons of not getting local rankings.
