However as you mentioned it doesn't "RANK" for the term you are hoping for.


Ranking in Local search has several factors:


1) NAP consistency ( Name Address Phone) is exact match for other local directories, ie Axiom, Yp Yellow, etc etc

2) Citations from many local directories that have NAP Consistency

3) Reviews

4) Proximity of searcher (IP Address - GPS Location) to the business.

5) How far away the actual business address is from the center of the city compared to the amount of competition for the same terms

6) AGE - has the business been at that location for a long time with relative other signals that determine they are who they say they are, do what they say they do and are located where they say they are.
