My presentation from SMX West 2011 in which some detailed research appears to reveal that directories may not have as direct an impact on map rankings as might seem. Inbound links and anchor text seem to carry a lot of weight in regard to rankings. Please note that this presentation and data are from March 2011. Google Places has been updating its algorithm noticeably over the past year. Be sure to stay on top of the latest changes.
