    Local SEO - Watch Out for Pigeons!

    Coogle, the Google PigeonThe urban pigeon is a relatively wily creature. Not cunning like a fox – more of a fearless perennial weed with wings, waddling amongst the human populace, waiting, waiting… The pigeon’s famous appetite for discarded chips and salty snacks is satisfied when these treats are dropped by passers-by. So; is Pigeon then an apt name for Google’s local search algorithm refresh, clearing the streets of Google one peck at a time? Can this post harbour the most bird references ever?

    Review Stealing Stopped By Google Places

    Google Places have long used reviews of local businesses from third party sites as a way of centralising all or as much information about that specific business.
