Wanted to share with you a new test that Google was doing by changing the vertical maps to a “Horizontal Map” for the Local Searches
What I found also that this test affected also Brand search with a Local Map Enabled:
I think these changes have multiple implications on Adwords (now ads are higher on the right sidebar). One more quick note i noticed that i did try multiple searches to trigger the blended search and couldn’t see a blended search with the new map.
