    Around 40% of my locations have been affected negatively. Lost 1st page on quite a bit of keywords.

    I noticed Google giving more weight to Yelp, Yahoo Local and Superpages. Also EMDs seem to be finding their way onto pg. 1.

    Anyone working with local SEO see the same results or have different observations?

    What about increasing the authority of your Yelp page?

    I guess the first question is, what have you been doing?
