Also does anyone understand how google places chooses who gets lettered/ranked?

Yeah, that's a tough question to answer succinctly. It has to do with your Places/Google+ page, your website, and citations... and a whole bunch of other junk. I personally have found it pretty easy to rank in Places but difficult to target specific keywords. If you want to really dig into it I can give you a few resources:

Thanks for sharing the info. I am home on a quick break and will dig into the resources you have shared this weekend. I read a article last night about the small potential that reviews from websites can play in ranking on google local places. I am having a small batch of 500 business cards made up I think with instructions on how to review us step by step on google plus for sure, If I can I might try to fit another site or two on there but I think google plus from my readings ranks more importance on their pages because google can obviously gain access in ways they can not on other social networks.

Anyone have thoughts or insight on how important reviews are in general or in terms especially as it relates to SEO from google plus reviews?
