    Google Local Business?

    On page SEO must have the following signal:
    1. Local phone number
    2. Local currency
    3. Local address
    4. local language
    5. Discuss on local topic - local product, local leader, local event

    Off page SEO
    1. Verified G+ places
    2. Linking from local site
    3. Specific country in webmaster tool.
    4. Host locally

    I think that you need to gain more and more links from the local based web sites. I have heard that google believe in their importance.

    There are many factors that are counted for getting higher rankings in local listings. Local Domain name, keywords in title, Listing in local business sites, backlinks from the local sites, keywords used in the local sites (Directories, Blogs, Articles, Social Book Marking Site, Press Release etc). It takes long time to get high rankings for most competitive keywords but all the marketing strategies would result in good local rankings.
