I'm an SEO for an Indianapolis Ford dealer. Up until this morning, we were in spot D on the first page for the term "indianapolis ford." Today, we are somewhere around spot I on the 3rd page of Places results. But, the reason that I think it's some kind of temporary thing is because all of the listings that were previously on the first page with us were bumped down to the third page along with us, still in the same order. The three pages that were ahead of us on the first page are still the three places ahead of us on the third page.
Also, for all of us that got bumped to the third page, the Places results is showing the business name from the actual Places page as the title (on the results page), instead or the website title (title for mydomain.com). This is not the case for the Pages that have been moved to the front page today. Their results title still shows as the title or their web page instead of their business name from their Places page.
Any ideas? I can't help but think this is just some type of temporary thing since it happened equally to the other sites.:confused::confused::confused:
