We are just a small accountancy business
Granted you're competing for a variety of cities, but your post made me consider how an accountant client of mine was ranking post-Penguin 2.0.
For at least eight years, that client was #1 for a search of accountants in their city (population of a million). As of this last week, he was bumped down to the local results. Now the top three spots(before you get to local results) are for Indeed, Yellowpages, and Careerbuilder.
That client is still #1 on Yahoo and Bing for the same search term.
