Hi Chris, the first step I would take is to setup a ppc/adwords listing in the first spot. It shouldn't be too expensive. You'll start to gain the benefits this afternoon. If it ends up costing a lot, you can stop/pause the campaign anytime. If it doesn't provide the results you hoped then you should consider reevaluating if getting up above the competitor for this one listing is worthwhile really.

From there, optimization takes time. With your ranking at #6, what time of result is that (organic, local?)

Thanks,
Get links from relevant sites that are not banned by the Google and have high PR. Also get Google + profile links. Show your daily activities on Google +. Link Google + page to your site. Enrich your circle from every IP of the world. I am hopeful you will get fast ranking. Never use any software for posting or spinning contents.

Do you think page rank is still helps in ranking the site in Google. I have read in an article that the site content matters in ranking the site. So i advise you to build some good quality content in your site for the respective keywords which you need to rank in search engines.

I agree with the relevant links but a relevant link of site that have PR6 is far more powerful than a relevant link of a site that have PR2

I like Logan's idea about using CPC/Adwords to get above your competitor. It's safer.

If you go the links route, you run the risk of a Penguin hit and loss of ranks and possible obscurity. Unless you're well-trained, I'd be very careful of trying to manipulate your rankings.

Hi Chris I would look into back links back to your site, and that will help you reach top of page. I would research back links on google. Also there is software you can use to help you. I wish you the best of luck

I completely agree with you, site content matters most and then PR. Have quality content in your site and try to build quality backlink this will surely help you.

Thanks,
Chris, first things first. Are you using the same phone number for both locations? This is something that can really confuse "BIG G" and result in your profile not being displayed as high as it might be. Ideally, you want a unique phone number for each location. You can buy local phone numbers very cheaply using a service like Twilio.
