Ranu Jain: Google places listings search results are based primarily on relevance, distance and prominence. ;<br /><br />Relevance: Relevance is how well your local listing matches with the inquiry someone is searching for. A complete and comprehensive listing in Places will definitely rank better on SERPs.<br /><br />Distance: It is how far is each potential search result from the location term used in a search? If you don't specify a location in your search, Google will calculate distance based on what they know about your location.<br /><br />Prominence: It is how well-known or prominent a listing can be. Google gathers this information from links, articles, and directories related to your listing. Some places are quite prominent in the offline world. Google tries to ;reflect this online as well. For example, famous museums, hotels, or renowned ;store brands that are familiar to people are also likely to be more prominent in search engine result pages.
