For example, you might have a chiropractor's office that has three separate listings for individual practitioners and then a listing for the practice itself. These separate profiles would all link to the same website and use the same phone number. Usually only one or two would show up in the local results and the rest would be filtered out. This makes sense because Google routinely filters out duplicate content organically and showing its users tons of results from the same company isn't necessarily best for users. When searching for a new dentist, do you really want to see the same practice listed multiple times? Since this update, we see many businesses filtered out because fax number list the business address is the same as another listing in the same category (same type of business). Here is an example. You search for "Palmdale Personal Injury Lawyer", and you get 16 results in the Local Finder. There are at least five listings using the address 1008 W Ave, Palmdale, CA, all of which are personal injury attorneys. Currently, one shows up in the local Finder and the other four are filtered out: Stefan Law Firm - presentation DeVille Law Group Inc - filtered iAccidentLawyer - filtered Nadrich & Cohen - filtered Wilshire Law Firm - filtered Broland on the Local Finder forum pointed out that you can see filtered listings if you zoom in slightly on the map in Local Finder. When I do this for this query, I now get 61 results - and most of the filtered results I referenced
Clunky and frustrating user experience content media
