In episode 77 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts (, one viewer asked if links that optimize keyword+neighboring city can boost the ranking of a Google Business map page.

The exact question was:

Ive got a business ranking in maps for the city its located in, and it also shows up in map results for a neighboring city, just not in the top 3. Could building a few links to the site using “keyword+neighboring city” as anchor text boost the maps position? Or does anchor text only effect organic results?
