Anyone notice these factors on Google Local Search since the update?

Good Morning Everyone,

I am noticing a few things and maybe I could be wrong. What you guys think?

* Keyword in business names are not factored as much as in local search.
* Spam business listings seemed to be either filtered or removed. Again not 100% but better than before.

I have not noticed anything in particular. What timeframe are you talking about and do have screenshots before & after by any chance?

There are definitely some verticals that have less spam than months ago but I don't believe it has anything to do with the algo update. What industries are you monitoring?

I'm in the addiction treatment space. There is plenty of spam, no changes due to the recent algorithm update. Still operating on submit the spam form and wait.
