Google making changes in its local search algorithms

With Google making changes in its local search algorithms, checking rankings for local business listings for geo-targeted terms is getting a bit difficult. Google also takes into account the searcher’s location and alter its search results to prefer local listings. So, searching for keyword “chicago pizza”, a person sitting in Chicago may get somewhat different results from a person sitting somewhere else. Sometimes, a person searching from outskirts, or suburbs, of major city do not get same results as a person searching from within city limits or center of city. However, there’s a way to determine local rankings with considerable accuracy. Google provide a Custom Location option in left hand s! ide menu options on search result pages (sometimes hidden under search Tools option). This lets you customize your search location. Make sure you are not logged into your Google account and disable personalization results based upon search activity.

Google Analytics supports Regular Expressions

It is good idea to evenly distribute your links between these navigation menus. This was recently discussed by a Google representative in Webmasters Help Forum thread. It is always a good idea to provide a search functionality to users or a link to detaile! d HTML sitemap.
