    Noticed yesterday, dentist geelong [auto detect Melbourne] had been removed.

    Also this morning, electrician in certain suburbs...not all of them.

    Anyone have an idea of what is happening here?

    People spamming Places, then getting wiped out. Nothing new I have seen it happening a bit. Or if they are legit places its probably a test too see how users react to other results.

    Also another new roll out I have noticed is Google+ 1s been shown on a GEO basis. Example 204 people +1'ed this website from Sydney.

    Not just total overall.

    My main business site lost its '7 pack' status earlier this morning, but now it's back to normal.

    They must be playing around with something...

    Word. Seems to be all back to normal now, with a few changes. I think they must have been tinkering with shit. Always weirds me out when they tinker with ..au. Such a small market

    I had a top 3 website disappear for 2 days then return. They're tweaking something... (again).
