Google 3 Pack Update
Google just updated how people see local business listings when people view search results. Here is what you need to know.
Google 3 Pack
The 7 local listings that used to appear on the top has now been whittled down to 3 local business listings. This serious scale down has now been nicknamed the “Google 3 Pack” or “Google Snack Pack.”
Exact business address are no longer included in the local listing section as part of the Google 3 Pack Update. The phone number of your business will not be visible with the preview listing, either; however, there will be a “Call” option still available on mobile devices.
How does this Google Update affect you? If your SEO of your business landed you as #4-7 of local listing results, you will no longer be seen at the top of Google results. The competition for top local listings just got more intense!
