Comment On Rumoured Google Local Search Changes

Search Changes

Cheshire, United Kingdom (14 July 2010) –, a leading SEO services company, comments on recent speculation that Google is set to refine its local search listings and alter the way that people search for local services online.

Speculation has been rife across the internet that Google may be about to make changes to the way their local search listings are presented after they released a statement when presented with some screenshots of a new-looking layout of results which some users experienced. Google commented: “It is an experiment – we’re continually trying out new tweaks to a portion of our users,” after they were sent user-made screenshots from a vigilant individual who noticed changes to her local results when she inputted a search query.

The most obvious changes are in regard to the location map, which, in the screenshots, is on the right of the screen and scrolls down the page along with the searcher. The listings are also larger and resemble normal web results whilst Google seems to pull Meta information from the site as well as review snippets. As one of the leading SEO agencies in the UK today, feel this could make a difference in the way people use results, thus having an impact on the search engine optimization industry.

“We think it’s great that Google is taking the time to work on improving local search – if these rumors turn out to carry weight, that is. It certainly looks encouraging and we’re optimistic that we’ll see these changes rolled out to more users sooner rather than later,” commented a spokesperson for “We’re great fans of targeting your SEO geographically, which can make all the difference to small businesses. The internet is such a huge marketplace that it’s easy to get swallowed up, so it’s crucial to define yourselves online through effective SEO which is targeted appropriately. Your web profile and online reputation can make all the difference to your success!”
