Is it just me, or did other people experience big changes in rankings on Google Local Business Center?
In the few weeks, I noticed that my rank didn’t just drop – it dropped off completely from the map on ALL my keywords (which were few). The search engine rankings are about the same, so I am guessing that it was not Google Caffeine. The only thing that I did differently on my end in the past month prior to noticing the problem was to link to the website from a PRzero site (formerly PR4) - which was…here
A quick search does not reveal any blogs about any changes.
I did notice in the last few days that my business info listed suddenly was showing as only 93% complete, when it was 100% before. Could this have affected things? I did not see any additional items added, oddly enough. So, I uploaded a Youtube video. Nope - that wasn’t it. Still showing 93% complete. I went in, and made some minor text change, and then it showed 100% change. It didn’t, however, affect my map listing at all for my keywords. At least not yet.
So the quest to get back continues.
I guess the only bright note was that the changes obliterated some of the competition as well.
What are your thoughts?
