1. Give a proper title for your Page(with keyword clubbing)
2. Give all details for your business like website url, phone numbers, address, pin code etc
3. Give option for users to write review about your business.

It's very hard to answer the question without more details. There are over 50 factors that go into the the old Google Places algo and now that Place Search is here, rankings also depend on tons of factors related to your web site and organic SEO.

I. General Ranking Factors

In this section, I asked participants to identify the influence of eight thematic clusters of ranking factors across the two primary types of Local results (localized organic, pack). In each case, they assigned a percentage of influence to all eight thematic clusters, totaling 100%. Businesses consistently ranked behind their competition in each of these types of results can use this section to prioritize their marketing efforts by theme.

II. Specific Ranking Factors

In part A of this section, I asked the experts to rank the top 20 individual ranking factors (out of a total list of 114) that have the biggest impact on pack/carousel rankings.

In part B of this section, I asked them to rank the top 20 factors from the same list, only this time to rank them based on impact on localized organic rankings.

In part C of this section, I asked them to rank the top 20 factors from the same list based on biggest impact in a competitive market, across both result types (pack and localized organic).

Results were then tabulated via inverse scoring, where the #1 ranked factor received the most "points" for that question, and the lowest-ranked factor received the fewest points. (The factors ranking outside the top 20 for all respondents ended up with zero points.)

Local search rankings can be achieved by local seo techniques. Local seo helps to promote your business in your area local and build its popularity within the country. Submitting your website to Google maps, classified ads and local business listing websites are some of the techniques used to build your local search engine rankings.

Despite having great content and good on-page, if your local search rankings aren't as per required then I would suggest to go for premium business listings & classifieds, as they are more effective than free ones. This way I think you should get appropriate results.

From year to year, the only thing you can count on in local search results is change.

Last year's survey corresponded almost simultaneously with the Pigeon algorithm update. We're now one year in, and although no significant algorithmic changes have been reported since Pigeon, the Local Stack / Snack Pack results were fully rolled-out worldwide just prior to this year's edition. Given that context, I asked respondents this year not only to rate ranking factors across pack and localized organic results, as in previous years, but also the specfic factors to which they were paying more (and less) attention to since the release of this interface.

As with last year's survey, the individual factors listed in the results are consolidated to just the top 50 in each category.

The Survey

As in recent years, the 2015 edition of this survey was divided into four parts.

I. General Ranking Factors

In this section, I asked participants to identify the influence of eight thematic clusters of ranking factors across the two primary types of Local results (localized organic, pack). In each case, they assigned a percentage of influence to all eight thematic clusters, totaling 100%. Businesses consistently ranked behind their competition in each of these types of results can use this section to prioritize their marketing efforts by theme.

II. Specific Ranking Factors

In part A of this section, I asked the experts to rank the top 20 individual ranking factors (out of a total list of 114) that have the biggest impact on pack/carousel rankings.

In part B of this section, I asked them to rank the top 20 factors from the same list, only this time to rank them based on impact on localized organic rankings.

In part C of this section, I asked them to rank the top 20 factors from the same list based on biggest impact in a competitive market, across both result types (pack and localized organic).

Results were then tabulated via inverse scoring, where the #1 ranked factor received the most "points" for that question, and the lowest-ranked factor received the fewest points. (The factors ranking outside the top 20 for all respondents ended up with zero points.)

III. Relative Change in Importance since Snack Pack / Local Stack

Here, I asked the experts to rank the five factors they were paying more attention to since the introduction of the Local Stack, and the five factors they were paying less attention to since that introduction.

Results were then tabulated via inverse scoring, where the #1 ranked factor received the most "points" for that question, and the lowest-ranked factor received the fewest points. (The factors ranking outside the top 5 for all respondents ended up with zero points.)

IV. Negative Ranking Factors

In this section, I asked the experts to rank 27 negative factors in order of most damaging to most benign.

You want to make sure that your Google My Business listing if fully optimized. Every field of information that they ask in the dashboard, must be filled in. Give them as much information as possible.

Make sure the category of your listing matches businesses that are ranking for your keyword

Beyond that, getting local citations can help your Google map rankings as well.
