Worst Local Search Results from Google, Ever!


Update

The Local search for Suffolk Hotels has now been corrected, so i do take my hat off to Google for actually listening …. it did take a lot of shouting though.

Below is the new results, feel free to read the rest of the post whilst you are here.

So what has prompted this post ?

Three weeks ago I noticed one of the worst search results returned by Google. Not making too much of a fuss, I posted a screenshot and added in Google, Google+ Local, thinking they would rectify this.

So why the fuss?

*Google has been shoving algo’s down our throats for the past 10 months, Why? : To serve the best possible results to the searcher.

 

Well Google, this is just not Good Enough !

Worst Local Search Results, Ever!

Hotel Finder – Displaying USA – Not UK

(if you cant get it to work in the UK then remove it until you can – Bad UX – is that not what you keep telling us)

1 out of all the properties is a Hotel, the other 6 well thats just a go figure.

Google has removed the Hotel Finder BUT the Local search results is only displaying 1 correct listing.

This must be a very “localised” search problem as neighbouring county searches are ok : Essex Hotels

However as we all know when there is such a glaring hiccup in Google, there are other problems appearing elsewhere that remain hidden.
