You might have heard something about a new Google update to its search algorithms. The buzz is true.
On Thursday, Google pushed out a major update to its local search algorithm, which primarily impacts the organic local listings within the Google Maps search results and Google Web search results.
Since Google didn’t officially name the update, Search Engine Land started calling it the “Pigeon” update. Google confirmed that the update is for U.S. English results, and it's not yet known when the update will roll out more widely in other countries and languages.
