I just want to get some insight to try and improve my online presence, when I do a search with my various keywords I come up 1st but on the Google places I don't show up and there is only one other computer place in town and they show up on in the Google places. I thought that they list up to 10 stores on the first page?

Verification: Time it takes a verified listing to appear
It may take up to 24 hours after verification for your new business listing to appear on Google. Updates to existing listings, including the removal of photos or entire listings can also take up to two weeks. We can't manually accelerate this process, but we are constantly working to improve our turnaround time for this system.

I looked over the Google Places Policies: Quality guidelines and the only thing that I can see that I did not do correctly was that I put a P.O. Box.

When I do a search using "Computer fix Yorkton"  I show up as a Google place on the map, would the po box instead of a physical address keep me from showing up on the map ?
