Hi MD Clean,
There is so much inaccurate, outdated and spammy content on Google’s My Business listings that I find them a useless joke.

I can see where you are coming from but I respectfully disagree.

Because these choose to put Business Listings on Page 1 for search, It is probably the fastest way for local business to achieve a first page result for competitive key words outside of Adwords.

I have some decent long tail keywords where I appear 4 times on the first page:

1. Adwords
2. Google Business
3. Organic
4. Through a citation eg, Truelocal

Overall, Free Page 1 Result, Multiple Results on Page 1 = the right kind of traffic = high conversion rate = profit!
