Google Pigeon Update: Was It A Major Update?

Thanks for the update and for sharing my forum thread Barry. To me this is major - may be not in broad scope of Google search, but to anyone focused on local this is MAJOR and a ton of back end stuff has changed too. Pete noted the MozCast results being slightly off. That's in part due to something I discovered and brought up at Blumenthal's blog then, I think he brought it to Moz attention. Geo searches are different now. In past if you search for City + KW and your location was elsewhere, didn't matter much. You could change search location that that city and results would be the same. But now they are wildly different. So to do an accurate search you need to reset to location of the query. I just made a bunch of other new observations at Mike's post today about why the Moz results were not quite accurate.
