Question about location and google places

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello 

 

I have a quick question concerning our business showing up on the free google local place listing. Our business address is located just outside of Denver. Does that effect the rankings in local places even If we use denver as one of the main keywords?

 

Does having a physical business address just outside your city advertised effect the local ranking?  

 

Thanks for your time!

Hi Eric,

Being outside of Denver will definitely effect your rankings if someone searches Denver. I think the best way to explain how Google works is through this post:
