For example, search for "Chicago hotel" in the SERPs. You'll see 3 hotels drawn from Google Maps in the top spots. Now click through "local business results for hotel near Chicago, IL." You'll see different hotels coming up in the top 3 spots.
So ranking in the top 3 on Google Maps doesn't guarantee you'll make it into the SERPs?
