I have a website on 1st organic positions on hundreds of geo-targeted keywords. Still not seeing any improvement in traffic because there are always at least 3 - 8 local results above my listing.

Is it possible that if I continue working on my SEO, my listings will eventually move on top of the local results?.

PS: Ranking for Google Places is not an option for me right now. A previous SEO person got the account suspended.

Thanks in advance

I doubt you can move above the local results. You'd have to get into them via a Places Page.

As I understand it, on those occasions when you see a small number of organic listings positioned above the local listings the algorithm may be showing a different results page for the same query to other users. Like Jill says, you need to work on getting back into the Places listings. I don't know what process, if any, is available for doing that.
