    The Google Pigeon update is one of the most significant changes to the local search algorithm and has changed the way local companies are ranked in organic search. The Pigeon update was first released in the year 2013, and it marked the first time that Google had redesigned its algorithm entirely to enhance its focus on the local results. It was the first update to completely revolutionize Google's core algorithms to sharpen the focus on local results. Google intended to bring local search results and web results together, and it worked.

    Hello Dona Miller,

    Thanks for the question
    Like a homing pigeon is known for finding its way home, Google’s Pigeon algorithm update was specifically designed to provide users with relevant query results close to home. At its debut, Pigeon was revolutionary and especially loved by local businesses with good SEO practices. For the first time, Google’s algorithm made it so that local searches really had the opportunity to shine, ranking higher than other non-local competition.
    With the rollout of Pigeon, Google was able to provide more useful, relevant, and accurate local search results to its users.

    GOOGLE PIGEON INITIAL RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 20, 2013
    The release of Pigeon resulted in one of the greatest shakeups of Google’s local and local organic results to date. This update was given its moniker by Search Engine Land, an industry publication that received direct intelligence from Google about the intent of Pigeon.

    Pigeon was designed to tie Google’s local search algorithm closer to their web algorithm and to improve ranking parameters based on distance and location. The local SEO community reported daily changes to local and local-organic rankings for weeks following the Pigeon rollout, including widespread replacement of the older 7-pack style of local results with packs featuring just 3 listings.

    Pigeon represents a challenge to local business owners in that, rather than chiefly penalizing bad practices, it redefined Google’s stance on relevance, taking into account some factors over which businesses have little or no control.

    For example, a business can’t control the radius Google draws around the point of a searcher to yield local pack results. Even if a restaurant on the west side of a city offers the finest dining, it may be out of luck in terms of pack rankings if the human searcher happens to be located on the east side of town. Aspects like these can’t be managed by the business, but fortunately, other factors can be managed for success in a post-Pigeon landscape, including
