Anyone noticed anything strange about the local results today? We noticed whilst during our daily checks that for some locations and search terms that there are no local listings showing.
It’s not effecting every search term or locality yet but certainly enough to post about. Could be just a glitch with Google making some changes.
It’s very unlikely they will be dropped altogether.
But as I write this I see more and more search terms with no local results.
I am sure a lot of people are going to be wondering what the hell is going on, but we will probably find out soon enough.
My guess is a layout change to the local listings is coming. It’s probably related to this update
