looking at my sites ive noticed that any sites with UK or Yorkshire etc
(locations) in the title have achieved a good position in related searches
wheres before these sites had a consistently good position across even
non-location searches...

so at a guess, google is further defnining the results with extra
limitations where a keytword is specified

i am currently experimenting taking out the locations to see if theres any


Re: google - observation

It is tough to tell whether this is a result of the new search
methodology or just coincidence.  I know that google is doing a lot of
testing of search by location.  They may have put some tags in the
databases in advance of them rolling local search on a full scale
basis.  Post a follow-up if you find more.

Hi Mark
Are you saying that having location in title is penalazing the keyphrase ,
we have noticed Google seems to like localised pages more ie. with locality
in Title. But have not been aware of changes/ penalties  in other terms.
