Sgt, so let's sat that you sell a certain shovel. You are saying that Google lists 7 stores that sell it locally?
Sadly this is to be expected as Google search has peaked, any gains will mostly be at our expense. As I I didn't have enough problems, soon enough my niche will too be overridden by 'local' which is actually ads, ads, ads...on top of the 3 top ads. Ads that don't have to compete with other ads and that are promoting an inferior product (Places and soon enough their +1.)
