    Hey Guys, i've been plugging away at trying to get my business showing in the top 3 of Maps on Google. I know it's all about reviews, citations, and also your organic ranking helps, but is there anything else you guys are doing to push to the top? Check my site out if you'd like.

    SEO, and good luck. Most keyword searches like 'carpet cleaning' + town are going to list the big boys who pay. Just my opinion but I don't waste my time anymore.

    Eddie,
    Your website has the design of someone that is always spamming this board. However, since this is a good question won't remove your link, Yet.


    I love Google Webmaster Tools... Make sure you're using them - they are free... Getting in the top 3 is hard but possible..

    Use this tool to check your website

    https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool

    I ran the tool along with another and you have a few mistakes that are easily fixed.

    The 3 pack is on the way to becoming paid ads - big G has been testing this already. So it will become a pay to play platform.

    Maybe - not fully rolled out yet. May not hit every industry - I think plumbers were the firs test. Hopefully we as cleaners will not fall under this - have to watch.

    I pay ad iq to put my at the top three of maps. They also do a website. My business isn't always on the top 3 but it's on it once in a while. For top three, websites, seo they charging me $150 month. Just started with them two months ago. So far 0 leads from the map and 0 website clicks from the map listing. Worth it just for the seo? Idk.
