Google Search Local Pack Tests Refine Query & Location Search Box


Google appears to be to be screening a specialized local pack that appears much more like the nearby company ads. Maybe this is a bug mainly because the ads are not labeled or perhaps Google is testing free community services listings? The nearby pack structure appears additional like regional provider ads and provides you the selection to refine the query and location.

I been given various notifications of this design yesterday, in this article is waht Robert Owen from Timberwise despatched me:

Compare that to what I see with no the refinement choices:

The reason I think this is community company adverts is mainly because this was noticed by other people and community SEOs reported it seems to be like them.

They do backlink to community service ads, so it’s possible this is a bug?
