Map at the top of the page

Recently I have noticed that when the Map is at the top of the Search resalts page there are no ads added to the search results. but if the Map is half way down the page it seems that my ad is in the first or second spot accompanied by 6 or 7 more ads. 

 

My Question is why, and is there something I can do to have my add show all the time? (I understand that the guarantee of all the time is impossible but when there are no ads showing google can't want that)

Hi @Terry Crowder,

 

It is suspected that there is some A/B testing being done by Google with local and maps. This is quite-possibly what you are seeing. I would give it more time to see what comes of it. 

 

Aside from this, if you set a first position bid, you are doing the best you can to be first (where possible).

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Thanks, J Clemens

 

This is kind of what I assumed was going on.
