Google just introduced Google Maps in my business niche. The first ten places go to: Businesses that DO NOT even have a web page and don´t know what SEO is! The space my online business ranked for (5) went to Siberia. The search term in google adwords for my keywords is very expensive so I have it on a tight budget and schedue. I´m very, very frustrated. I feel all my hard SEO work was worthless! If anyone can help I would be very grateful.
I assume you are talking about how if you searched for "New York Car Mechanic," a map with a list of mechanics would show up, as well as the natural search results.
Have you already added your business(https://www.google.com/local/add/)?
This is a good idea and will mean your business should show up in the maps section, as well as wherever it ranks naturally. Just make sure you verify your address(Google sends a code to the address and you have to enter it in,) otherwise someone else could take over your listing.

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
