Tweet Fire up an Incognito browser, do some local searches and you might see some new Google local SERPs. It looks like Google may have unleashed the new All-Google-Places local layout they had been testing in more cities (Update: I have reports that this is being seen in Burbank & Australia and others that it is not being seen in Orange County, CA and Washington, DC so this could just be more testing).
Thus far I have found two layouts:
- 2 web results followed by a 7 pack with the map on the right side
- 7 pack with map on the right side followed by a series of related category and location tag links
- 7 pack with map on the right side with no category or location tag links
I am still seeing the normal 7 pack layout when I use a browser with cookies turned on, even if I am logged out of Google. I’ll keep digging around. Please let me know in the comments if you are seeing these and where you are located. Pizza in San Francisco 2 web results followed by 7 Place Page results. Map on the side. Dentists in Burbank, CA 2 web results followed by 7 Place Page results. Map on the side. Restaurants in Chicago 7 pack with map on left nav followed by category & location tags Taxis in New York City 7 pack with map on left nav – no category & location tags Tweet
