Our search algorithm puts some weighting on recently updated or reviewed business listings, such that ‘currently active’ business listings get some degree of priority in search results. That’s one way in which we allow ‘current’ or ‘active’ listings to bubble up. So you can start by regularly inviting your customers to review your listing, or at least update your tags to keep them relevant and current.
Frequently updated pages tend to get better indexed by the search engines, meaning you’re more likely to get found on Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and others too.
We also give priority to claimed listings because we regard those as verified and more current.
We won’t guarantee that you’ll always be number 1, it depends upon what other claimed listings present an exact search match, but you can be sure you’ll be right up there.
