Google Place Search Has SEOs Divided

One component of the new Google Place Search is the merging of local and organic results in a more blended layout. While local marketers around the world are scrambling to figure out any new algorithm changes that have resulted from this release, a battle royale has broken out amongst otherwise civil-toned SEO bloggers to lay claim to the naming rights for these new results. Here’s what we have so far:

Mike Blumenthal – “Loco-organic” (alright, it’s not in his post, but it was in an email from him)

Miriam Ellis – “Integrated Google Local Results”

David Mihm – “The O-Pack”

My own lame attempts here.
