Google Pigeon


Google's Pigeon algorithm was rolled out in July 2014 and it focuses on improving the results of local search queries. In addition, prior to Pigeon, searches on the web and on Google Maps provided different results. The Pigeon algorithm solved that problem and also gave a rank boost to local directories like Yelp, TripAdvisor and Open Table.
