My business offers services in a few areas but we don't have a physical presence in any of them. This seems to be a huge disadvantage when it comes to being ranked for local searches. What's the best way to overcome this? I've considered renting desk space in each location, paying random people, friends, etc., but all of this seems really unecessary. I imagine Google uses this as an easy way to "take out the trash", but it's quite annoying for my business specifically (we hire people to do work once orders are placed, we don't need a store).

Any easy way to deal with this?

Thanks guys :)

For businesses that provide services at the customer's location (thus don't have/need a central office that customers would visit), I believe the Google Local Business Center offers the option of specifying a "service area." Here's an article that describes the feature. Perhaps that would work for you?

Google local has completely changed this week. There will no longer be Places Pages. Instead it's all integrated into Google+.
