    "Something also very interesting, we saw it this weekend; they are also giving results based on open hours. For instance a HUGE change on Sun and 85% of the seven pack were new for us and they were all open on Sunday. Come Monday, they were all gone."

    anyone else noticed this, or confirm/deny?
    Chad we had a recent post about hours you might find interesting. May fit right in!

    Right, It makes sense that google would want, or even require folks to post hours of operation, but this was the first hint that they would alter the results/ranking that dramatically based on hours of operation. Would love to know if others are seeing this.

    Still doing ranking tracking screenshots for Seattle Chiropractor in post #5 almost daily.

    Check it! Pack radically shifted again today. I've never seen so much random movement - ever!

    Tougher and crazy expensive. That's why my agency is back to Local after waiting for Google to get it together. We still mostly do PPC but SEO division is catching up really fast.

    Seeing a lot of things that do not make sense here, Joshua. I don't think anyone has managed to connect the
    dots yet. And, maybe that what this algo is designed to do - within specific parameters of course. More realistically, it could still be sorting itself out.

    I agree Dino, this algo does not make sense and is still changing all the time.
    (Just look at the rank tracking in post #5.)

    Here's a great post from yesterday with experts like Mike and David Mihm weighing in on this algo.
