Google searches and Maps
So I run a skydiving company out of PA (I'm elsewhere in the US at present). If I search 'PA skydive' we appear in the results. If I search 'skydive PA' we don't show, nor if I search PA Tandem skydive and some other terms.
Guess my question is whats driving the search results and our not showing up? Is it a function of our website or my google+ (local business page)
