    Exclamation Google Pigeon Update

    Guys Google launches new local search algorithm update and it called Google Pigeon. It is not designed for web spam but a basic change to the local search ranking algorithm. Google does not stated the percentage of queries that impacted on this update and I'm sure its not so important at all. This changes was rolled out to Google web and Google map search results.

    At first I thought this was a joke. There was a PigeonRank spoof Google from a couple of years ago. Google PigeonRank Technology

    Yeah your right just like this article Google PigeonRank Technology but now the local search ranking algorithm called Google Pigeon was rolled out July 24, 2014 to improve local search results and map search listings in Google. Do you still remember when was the first spoof content that was released regarding this latest update?

    According to the article on Search Engine Land, Google is not calling this the Pigeon Update. Search Engine Land coined that name.

    With Google's fondness for black and white animal names, they should have called it the Skunk Update.
