Seems Google has added maps of local business locations to many of their search results and have pushed results for search results 4-10 below the fold - much to the annoyance of the companies listed there.
The only way to counter this is to get your company in the listings and do it better than your competitors. Google allows companies - in fact encourages them- to add pictures, links and other additional information that can help local business.
The Google Local Business Center tells people to, "Stand out from your competitors by adding photos, videos and more."
So if you find yourself pushed below the fold, or just want to be the best listing in the group I suggest you make use of this valuable assistance.
