    Have you looked at your Google Places listing today?

    Google is at it again, changing things. My rankings have not moved much but a lot of things for getting rankings in Google Places could be out the window.

    On my sites, the expanded description is gone and the citations are gone.

    I have not gotten around to checking how the removal of citations will affect tools like getlisted.org and whitespark, but I am concerned.

    Is this temporary thing, or just a step to a whole new listing and algorithm to ranking?
