Google Updates Local Mixed Results

Here are some screen shots for the new Google local look. From gray place page markers to blue advertiser markers and down to red organic markers. The script highlights the organic marker while hovering the map. It will also pop up snippets for the organic results. Advertisers don’t get snippets. But they do get a cool blue marker after you scroll over the PPC ad. I searched Phoenix Pest Control first.

Screen shot for Phoenix Pest Control. Always nice to see pest control ratings in good standings. Way to go Bulwark Exterminating.

The above is the pop out for the listing. New as well is the feedback. All good companies look for feedback.

What the bug is this? Is that a spam parked page hosted by godaddyo on the first page and in the place pages for a Houston Pest Control search? Sounds like a real pest problem there.

Back to pest control ratings and reviews if you highlight the map there is the snippet. Bulwark Pest Control… 4.5 stars? Not bad for a Phoenix exterminator.

Oh… a little pest management would really help here. How does a page have 2 different review counts? Why is the screen shot for http://bulwarkpest.com show the home page of http://www.bulwarkpestcontrol.com? Why do you keep hitting the reset button?

A little scripting error here as well. The marker is highlighting Bulwark Exterminating in Mesa AZ, when it should be showing the scorpion control ad below for spray plus.


And yes, bug state has a real location. I am just surprised that the spam sites are not getting sucked up here. Pest control to the rescue!

    The world is going green. “Green” is the color of environmental concern, the impetus that drives cutting-edge technology, the buzz word of the socially conscious. Concern for the environment and man’s impact on it is bringing a slew of new products to market, and pest control is no exception.
