    I have never thing about that as actually Google local listings have never work very well on my of the websites that I have worked for. However, I can offer this service to my customers, but probably will be for free.

    I understand that ranking position in the local listing, important for crowded categories, is based on the number of yellow/super pages listing and the number of reviews found at google places and elsewhere.
    Some have managed to get P.O. box service addresses accepted in local listings, that probably won’t last.

    Unrelated: google tweaked their algorithm after one store got ranked by abusing a lot of customers i order to induce them to write bad reviews on complaint sites, seems that G wasn’t distinguishing good from bad.
