    Re: Significant G+ Local Ranking Shifts

    Something changed, just starting to research.

    Mike posted about the sh*tty Hummingbird one boxes being largely gone. So something changed.

    A previous consulting client emailed me that's ALWAYS been #1 and she's gone from the pack.
    So was just researching for her.

    So then when I just saw your message, started checking some listings I track and yes lots of movement all over the place.

    So it appears there is either a dance or a full blown update is in the works.

    I have not had time yet to check Webmaster World and other places to see if there was an organic update.

    What are you seeing Colan? Any rhyme or reason?

    What's everyone else seeing?

    Re: Significant G+ Local Ranking Shifts

    Saw one change that is ugly from our perspective. Still have a #1 in organic above the pac, which is good...but not as good as before. Will be looking closely at this going forward.

    Re: Significant G+ Local Ranking Shifts

    Rhyme or reason? Maybe....

    One client jumped 23 to 3 for main keyword.

    There was a one-box listing that was showing-up, and I thought if that was fixed, then that would be the connection, but I'm still seeing a one-box every so often today.

    Re: Significant G+ Local Ranking Shifts

    One member here was penalized out of the carousel and even though he cleaned up the listing after I told him what was wrong, he remained #1 organic but just could not get in carousel and deserved to be. So it looked to me like one of those lingering penalties. Just checked and he's now #1 in the carousel. YAY!

    One of my old ex-clients who jumps in and out of the pack cuz he's WAY far from centroid - has been out of the pack for months now. Just jumped back in and is sitting at C which is awesome considering big city and he's way on the border of town.

    Am seeing some SERPS with new players in the pack that do not usually rank.

    And then there is the one plumber that is normally A and dropped out of the pack. (But Google changed something odd on their listing so that's maybe not algo but something just with their situation.) I don't have time to do consulting these days and am not on retainer so have not made time to dig any deeper on that one.

    Re: Significant G+ Local Ranking Shifts

    Checking around today in the Lawyer landscapes I have seen a lot of movement for local in the SERP's. Today I am seeing a lot of new players, some completely gone, and others that were ranking well moved down. This is not isolated to one area and I am seeing the same results across multiple geographic areas. Organically however I have not seen many changed.

    Although I see this much more often it might be worth noting. Over the past few days I noticed a lot of local searches being pushed below the first group of organic listings where previously they were above them. I see Google testing this all of the time but this time it's been the same for days.

    Thanks Dusty!

    I'm having convos other places and am getting other reports. Some moving up and some down and Blake who is also a member here said many of the new listings he's seeing jump into the pack are spammy or EMDs.
