Google has been doing some wild things to its local algorithm. An update rolled out in the USA on July 24th. Results have been bouncing all over the place since then. Changes have affected both web and map search results.
Google has not finished tweaking it’s algorithm. Once they have nailed it, changes will likely be migrated to other countries. See Search Engine Land’s article.
The article validates the previous Pigeon article at sitepronews.com, stating that ranking for many local directories have increased. If you are hoping to rank locally it would be advantageous to have a listing in those high ranking directories.
