Google local results shifted in two significant ways that local businesses and home service providers should take note of.
1. Fewer local organic results display on the first page.
Where last week seven local results were shown next to a map for a local-intent query, this week we see only three organic local listings by a map. As a result, local businesses ranked beyond the top three have no organic visibility.
2. Google is testing a new search ad format for home service providers.

In this SMX West liveblog coverage of the session “Expert Excel Essentials” we’re reminded that Excel is a versatile problem solving tool that everyone has access to. Let’s turn raw data into something that people understand and can make decisions using.
Moderator Chris Sherman says that an Excel-focused session has been running at SMX for a few years. It started as an experiment. Search marketers know Excel but there are different levels of knowledge and skill. If used properly Excel is a Swiss Army Knife, so it pays to invest in your Excel chops. After hearing the Excel tips shared here you’ll be inspired to go back to your job and do things in a tool (Excel) that everyone has, so you’ll make a difference.
