Google converted all 7-pack listings to 3-packs for local search queries . This means that instead of showing seven businesses in the pack and in the map, it’s now showing only three businesses. The importance of local SEO has grown even further since Google’s Pigeon update in 2014, leading many businesses to refocus or increase their local optimisation efforts in order to get a slice of that first search engine results page (SERP). This update tied local results more closely to traditional ranking factors. According to two studies conducted by Google, 50% of mobile users that searched for a local business visited a store within 24 hours and 34% of desktop/tablet users did the same. According to a comScore study 78% of local mobile searches result in offline purchases .
