    Google Local SERP Results Change Again

    Last Thursday, Google shifted the pack display (Blended Results) from mostly blended with large pins to the smaller pin display (Map Packs) with locally driven ranking (ie Maps order) rather than organic driven ranking.

    Re: Google Local SERP Results Change Again

    Hi Stefano,

    We started discussing it here on Friday. It started with Colan's observation about a change in font size and then I realized it was the old Places algo with lots of doubles instead of organic blended into the top of the pack.

    Thanks Linda,

    Ive been following that thread closely since it began I was referring to G changing map title font size back to the larger display. Wanted to see if it was just me or if anyone had noticed it as well. She's really made a lot of moves these past few days!

    Ya, I thought you'd seen it since you are so good about reading everything here.

    Ahhh that distinction in his post was just the changing font size? Seemed he was talking about the whole change we started discussing Friday.
