    This was a major update,if you have google places listings you'd better check they are still there.No I'm kidding they have blitzed alot inc some legit businesses I know(but have no dealings with).Some keywords no longer produce places listings,some have been reduced from 7-4 box.Big change,BIG CHANGE!This is in the UK btw.

    Yeah, we need to keep our eyes on this as there have been major changes. I've heard of people getting their listings called and verified by gewgle itself.

    I'm sure this will go worldwide if it hasn't already, they have been scammed so hard up to this point it was inevitable that they do *something* even if their efforts ends up completely screwing real businesses. It would be hilarious if the fake ones end up winning out.

    Im getting entire 1st page results of merged 'normal' results and places listings. They are also changing literaly every few hours - eg the same search term showing completely different results.

    I wish they would just hurry up and decide what they want to do, i have clients calling to say they have gone of the 1st page, and by time i get to check they are back!

    I think it was only a matter of time before they cracked down but it just reamins to be seen if they are doing this for real and if they can be bthered going the whole hog so to speak
