Google Maps Integration with Organic Search Results removed Map listings from the 1st

    Google Maps Integration with Organic Search Results removed Map listings from the 1st page.

    Anybody noticed Google integrating organic search results with google maps?

    Not sure if it will stay that way but Google basically got rid off the map box results with this move.

    From what I see, if your website was #1 in organic search and it was also listed with Google Maps, then your organic listing just got enhanced ( integrated ) with map info, phone number etc.
    Whoever had just map listing and no top organic listing to go with it, is gone since there is no more map box up there.

    Dude, with the new enhancement in Google in the form of Google Instant, Maps/Local Search Listings positions have dropped. The basic reason behind is to save the 'bandwidth'. Since Google Instant loads faster, Maps are harder to load within the time.

    Guess what? they gave you a free ride now that you tasted it, they want you to go ahead and purchase sponsored ads.Did you ever think Google does something out of love?
    For free..?
    It is all money talk, always will be.

    Yes this is bad for SEO done to local sites! But makes generic search terms that much more valuable. I do believe Google is just trying this on , as a User i thinks its a terrible way to display listings, makes me want to bing. As a web guy it chokes me up. I think this is a bad idea on their behalf.

    Pradeeps,

    I think they are improving their Business in Map .... In future surely they will make Google Maps as a Paid Campaign in the name of Google Instant.
