From the press release it sounds like only index connect customers will have access to Geotargeting. Won't this only serve to help very large companies dominate local searches (were smaller companies tend to thrive)? I don't see this as an improvement unless there's equal access to all paying customers.
I'd like to know more about this. If someone searches for "apple" how is web search 9 going to know if they're searching for the fruit or the computer manufacturer?
Are the editors going to change the algo to deal with the problems or are they just going to manually ban sites?
