In my experience and research editing google places business listings there are a few key factors. Today I just want to touch on the #1 thing that is in your control to edit since you can’t change your centroid. The five categories you have listed for your business is the number one factor in where your listing appears in the local search results. You typically should only choose one of the default categories that google offers. The other categories should be choosen based on your keyword research. It is imperitive that you know what people are searching for to find your business and utilize those keywords to get more customers.
