    Exclamation NEW! Local Carousel now shows Dentists, Drs & Attorneys

    This news, just in...

    Professional listings are now showing in the Google Local Carousel display!

    Don't worry, the carousel is not showing for regular keyword searches yet...
    But this 'could' signify that it's coming.

    Here's how to trigger it. Search for City + Dentist or City + Attorney. Pick a Dentist and mouse over arrows on right to make their Knowledge Graph pop up. Then click one of the three Dentists listed under "People also search for" and this is what you'll see...

    It spouts a carousel view!

    Original random query: Alpharetta Pediatric Dentist

    More details at Local SEO Update and hat tip to our member Alex Cordes for posting about this on Google+. Here is his post that broke the news.

    Local Carousel Results for Professionals

    Go there for more screen shots and a more well thought out post. I just wanted to quickly share the news.

    Thoughts???

    I think you better make sure your listing and has a good image that shows up in the carousel.
    That's what I think!

    Test it and make sure your clients look good just in case the carousel spreads to brand or KW searches.

    Mike just posted more details and screenshots that show how to trigger this new carousel display.

    He also noted it's not just Professional listings but maybe ALL?

    Re: NEW! Local Carousel now shows Dentists, Drs & Attorneys

    Works for insurance too. I hate the carousel lol.

    Interesting. Check out how this listing says "relocated" in the panel (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzV...it?usp=sharing) . I click on it and get the knowledge graph for the listing which also says "relocated" but yet when I click the G+ page link, the listing is fine....https://plus.google.com/105083931651...51/about?hl=en

    Re: NEW! Local Carousel now shows Dentists, Drs & Attorneys

    Hi Joy, maybe I'm missing something but the listing in the screenshot says 'arctic Blvd' while the live listing has a completely different address. Google has been auto redirect closed/relocated listings to the new listing. IN classic maps when selecting 'more info' on the closed/relocated listing, it also redirects to the new listing.

    Me too! I'm OK if it stays for dining and lodging.

    But I hope this does not spread to KW search. If it stays as it is now I'm not too worried because it's not too discoverable. I don't think that many consumers take the click path that would lead to this new carousel display.

    But my fear is that like other changes they've made they testing the water so they can ease us into it and then we could be heading toward full carousel everywhere. Sure hope not!

    Dino, it goes not show for regular KW searches. Did you try following the instructions for how to trigger it? (In my top post or Mike's screen shots?)

    Thanks!
