    Looks like G wants more Adwords revenue. Everything is a 3 pack for local results. Sucks for local SEOs.

    You can always count on Google to screw things up..... Not a fan of this update being a consultant and a consumer....

    At the end of the day, got to deal with it and keep doing business :)

    I'm going to make that my new business motto. "You can always count on Google to screw things up." Ha!

    Got a Google adwords voucher in the mail yesterday and today - bam, 7 pack gone! Talk about one scheming greedy ass company.

    Every time one of those adwords vouchers hits my door within one week Google is bending us over. It's like clockwork and so f'en predictable. Screw Google and their over-priced adwords shit. Trying to run a legit company and all they do is keep trying to corner and monetize the entire f'en economy. Hopefully some f'en government agency worth a shit will take on the Google monopoly one day or are politicians all over the world controlled by Google's algorithm and lobbying bribes already?

    They definitely have it down to a science huh? I have 3 clients ranking like #4-5 in what was the 7 pack. Phone will be ringing soon "we are not on page 1 anymore, what happened?!?"

    Only two things in life are certain: death and taxes (maybe this could be a close 3rd runner up)

    Bad news for local rankings, good news for nationwide ranking and those advertising. Honestly I always felt that local results were more of a pain in my ass than help.

    It's really early, but reviews seem to be the key...

    Google is CONSTANTLY trying to shuffle things. And its not just for money squeezing, its because NOTHING they do is making people on phones click Google ads enough. They are scared to death how mobile traffic is now bigger than desktop and growing and they get a lot fewer paid clicks on phones. Its a HUGE problem. So they do all kinds of shit. If Bing or somebody figures it out first Google may lose their edge. Who knows.

    Does this present more of an opportunity for local lead catching?
