Place Pages Live In Regular Serps - time for a change

10+ Year Member

When I am searching on regular Google, I don't ever want video results, nor do I ever want maps. If I search for widget I am looking for generic widget results, not widgets in my town. I do not want to continually log out of personalised results and I don't want to continually reset my location to UK rather than town in UK. I hate it when I type a search term and hit enter because 60% of the time I get a blank screen, instant can't handle normal search behaviour.

Having said all that, I have kept Google as my default SE... until today. I am now getting place pages above the fold in the normal serps (first time for me)I thought some of the premium adsense pages looked spammy with 7 add blocks, but Googles search result page takes some beating

I'm afraid it's the final straw for me - gonna have to change SE.

These new Place SERPs are actually hybrids. Many times the rankings,along with the titles and snippets are still "organic" but if the site has a Place page, then the red marker is also added. If there are a lot of red markers it can create a deceptive appearance.
