When I search Google for "house painting Clayton CA" I see 10 Google Places results -- but NONE of them are located in Clayton!
The "A" listing has zero reviews and doesn't appear to be well optimized, so it makes me wonder why it got the top spot (maybe great citations, but I doubt it -- I didn't check.)
What really drives me mad is that my client's Google Places listing didn't come up at all, even though he has 4 great reviews.
His listing is here. (I have not touched it yet; he set this up himself.) When I did a search for the same phrase last week, his listing came up in the "A" spot and only 2 other listings showed.
Now his listing has apparently vanished?
Can someone else please search on the phrase "house painting Clayton CA" and tell me if you get the same ridiculous results I did?
How could so-so listings that are not even located in the city I'm searching outrank good listings that are? :confused:
