    Google Local Results Gone?

    Hey Linda Im seeing the same. Location set to Miami. Search was for dentist. Another thing which is seemingly insignificant, but just thought Id bring it up is that I searched for "dentist" in all lower case and the word was capitalized automatically at the results page. Perhaps to match/bring...

    Google Local SERP Update: Old Pack Algo & Doubles

    re: Google Local SERP Update: Old Pack Algo & Doubles You are a sleuth Linda! This could be great news for the clients who had been blocked form entering the pack due to having their site in organic already. I know you had one dealing with this. Can't wait to see how it shakes out.

    5 Reviews, No Stars (7-Pack)

    I agree with Colan, if you just got the 5th review then give it a few days and check back. Since going from 4 reviews to 5 reviews forces the review rating breakdown chart to pop up on the local page, there will be more of a delay here than with any other review you get moving forward. Just make...
