Google Maps Change for Organic Listings

Google has made some interesting changes to their maps listings, this will see the map listing moved to the right and organic listings moved to the center. This removes the old 10 pack listings which were used previously. This change is an interesting one and I am sure it will have an impact for websites traffic, especially paid search listings on the left of the page they will see a large drop in traffic also with only 2 organic listings now on location pages these will also suffer traffic drops, this just emphasizes the fact for a strong Google local strategy.
