    I have noticed over the last week or so that I am starting to see less GPlace results in "ServiceName city" or "ServiceName in city".

    Instead I see local businesses website in the SERPS instead of the places. Do you think this is a move by Google to try and bump local businesses to build sites versus just relying on GPlaces?

    I already know that GPlaces gets a lot of it's weight from the business website, but I believe this is starting to re-enforce the idea. Just thought I would toss that out there incase anyone is trying to sell GPlace rankings on those naming conventions.

    well, its sometimes like that, then it will reverse back. Maybe they are experimenting on something but again so far, it always come back :)

    Well that is good to hear that you are seeing it come back. I am in a bit of a small city population 130,000...So it very well could be that there is no one really listed for said services.
