I clean roofs in Tampa, but I live 10 miles away in Brandon Florida. Most of my competitors simply made up a central Tampa address, and so did i.
But I think Google caught all of us, and our listings no longer are showing up.
Should I claim my place page with my REAL address on it ?

Google has a tremendous amount of data on actual searches but apparently no one was looking at it when they developed some of the keyword sets for the Google Boost campaigns. Time and time again I see a Boost campaign that has a huge folder of zip code related keywords with absolutely zero impressions, or very close to, let alone clicks. I know that the keyword sets are set-up programmatically, but why put such an emphasis on zip code if the data clearly supports there being no traffic to zip code searches? The only thing I can think of is that maybe the keyword sets were designed by the local folks who think in terms of zip codes and how they define local territories all the time and not PPC folks who think about what terms customers are searching for.
