Mike Blumenthal and Ben Fisher alerted me that they are noticing Google Posts are now showing up at the bottom of the Knowledge Panel. I literally just looked for a post for a client and was confused on why it wasn't showing and then realized "oh there it is, at the bottom".

This is disappointing in my opinion.

Here is a random example I found showing how it looks on desktop:

On mobile it's actually detached from the Knowledge Panel and mixed in with organic.

This appears to be some sort of a test, I hope they move it back to the top, it was one of the main reasons people wanted to do posts in the first place.

I noticed something else today that is unrelated but also kinda a potential signal of change.

I found this in the Hotel Finder, notice the ads for Travelocity look eerily like GMB Posts?
Maybe this is a reason Hotels do not get Posts?
OR could it be a signal that G is going to allow others to advertise on GMB Posts?
