Google launched last week a new algorithm to address more specific and relevant local searches. Little information has yet filtered through this new system which is still running in the United States …

The new algorithm has not been officially announced by Google and was born without a name, being named “Pigeon Update by the website Search Engine Land, a sort of unofficial spokesman for Google in relation to news and information about SEO and Marketing search in general.

The Pigeon Update aims to improve local searches, making them more relevant and accurate, and are much closer to the traditional organic search ranking factors, both being visible in Google Maps results as in the natural results.
