    Not sure this has anything to do with anything, perhaps I just never noticed this but look at this screen shot for the SERP query of "keller lowry reviews" which is a well known insurance company here. Check out what I highlighted, the text under their listing says Missing: reviews with reviews struck out......have any of you seen this before?

    I set my location to Denver and see that exact result but not the review part.

    Did you review them once then delete your review or something?

    Very strange, no have not reviewed them and not even logged into my G account. When I change my location to anywhere but Denver it goes away but comes right back when I switch back to Denver. Same for 3 different browsers with cleared cache.

    And check this out, it is not just on their local listing but a regular organic listing as well:

    Chesapeake dentist used to always be a 7 pack. Now it's a 3 pack.

    Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist dropped from being a 7 pack to a 3 pack.

    Los Angeles personal injury attorney - major shake up.

    Indianapolis plumber - pretty big shuffle.

    personal trainer Scottsdale all moved around. You can see previous rankings Joy listed in this post.

    What I'm seeing is more legit business on there not to spammy with scammers

    Chris, I have seen the slashed out word before. I think its telling you that the search result doesn't have the word "reviews" in it even though you had it in your query.

    WOW! I can't tell you how excited I am to see the pack results this morning. We have had 5 clients that we have struggled to get back into the pack after name changes and changes of address and they are all sitting happy at #1-#3....Crossing fingers this stays!

    Colan, i think you're right about the missing reviews thing. I just tried it and noticed the same thing in the snippet for the #2 result in the SERP, which was an internal page on the client's site (ie no G+ page connection)
    Trying to get stuff done for clients.
    Find me on Google+.

    This might be a stupid question and I apologies in advance but how do you change your location when doing a search?
