    Seeing wide spread Crap Pack results

    Google could be testing new wide spread usage of the New Crap Pack on all industries, not just restaurants hotels and a few others

    If this goes widespread its essentially Google saying to all smb's

    You are getting less traffic from us. Not a good sign at all.

    Thanks for sharing Dave!

    Oh dear, I've been afraid of this. Sure hope it's only a test and does not spread to all local results.
    But I know they've been testing it for quite some time.

    I checked that query and others and still see normal 7 packs OR in the case of "Los Angeles personal injury attorney" a one-box that should not be locking everyone else out.

    What's bad about the "Snack Pack", for anyone that has not tuned in...

    Only 3 listings have a shot at page 1.

    And in this new display: no link to site, no phone# and no full address. You have to click to another Google page to get more info, which gives users a bunch of other chances to click off to some other listing.

    Not good!
