ok this is interesting... up until now I have only done searches like this:
postcode keyword phrase
and then it didn't show up (but did include businesses that were as far away as 10 miles away)
but your reply made me try the following:
postcode "business name"
and now it comes up!
Why? I was under the illusion that Google Places would list the nearest ones, so why am I not listed for my keyword? In any case, I am ranked in the top10 in Google nationally for this keyword phrase, so I can see no reason why I should be excluded locally, even if they add some kind of relevance score to the mix.
What is going on here?
