Industry Update: June Google Local Update

Why isn’t my business showing in the Local 3 Pack on Google?


Megan: Hi, I’m Megan. I’m a Digital Strategist at The Clix Group and we wanted to provide you Google update regarding the Local 3 Pack.

If you’ve been paying attention to the changes in the map section when you search on Google, you’ll notice it turned from 7 Pack to a 3 Pack of the 3 prominent local listings.

The changes you are about to see, is that there will be three locations in the maps now, but only 2 will be organic and 1 will be a paid ad. 

What this means for you is that the maps section is going to be a lot more competitive space than it used to be, your business (if it’s already in the maps) may fall out of the maps if you don’t have paid ads.

We’ve noticed that Google is focusing a lot more on Local SEO and so you may have noticed that our team has been reaching out to you to verify more listings, contact you about different citations, and changes.

If you have questions about your campaign or you want to learn more about the changes in local, you can contact us at 314-222-2582 or
