Up until recently (I guess since the latest Google update) my (two) sites ranked pretty much 1st and 2nd for searches for "rugs Glasgow" and "rugs Scotland" - however now Google seems to have pretty much replaced three quarters of the first page with local listings. My sites still show up in these local listings but as a result seem to have been removed from the general/full SERPs.
My issue is that A) any of the description of the pages disappear (although my site that ranks 1 does have 3 sub-links underneath it on it's local listing) making selection for searchers much more difficult leading to B) I'd just scroll by the local listings thinking they are lesser than the old-style natural listings below them and I'd imagine many others would.
I've since changed my local listings homepage to my contact us page in the hope it lists that AND then lists our homepage in the natura listings, but don't know if that's a bad idea?
Anyone have similar issues or any ideas what's the best practice?
