For the past year we have been asking the same question. While we can’t take credit for the answer we can definitely take credit for sharing the information.
The answer was found be a few different Google Places Consultants companies like ourselves. Now these results are an average and are not set in stone. It is also important to know that anytime a Google updates their algorithm, which seems daily, your results could change. This information was given out by Vanesa a member of the Google Places team and daily contributor on the Google places forums.
