    We have heard about Google's search engine spam removal updates like penguin, panda and hummingbird.
    After hummingbird Google released the new update called PIGEON in the July 2014 last week.

    From the sources we got to know that this update gives better search results local maps.
    Currently it is limited to United States English search results only.

    The small business owners are suffering a lot and losing their business because of high competition pressure from large companies. This pigeon update is a big relaxation and a support for small business owners.

    What ever it is this update may have pros and cons for debate but it is bringing a new strength to local business to compete with large corporate companies.

    Several people noticed that real estate and DUI lawyers searches disappear from results.

    I completely agree with you, this update is relating to the local maps. Are you sure this update will affect only US search?

    There is no such official draft was released whether it is limited to US only or any of it's news. We are getting this information from web experts so most of it will be genuine news only.

    Even matt cutts also can't reveal also the important points regarding Google updates.

    This latest update to Google's algorithm had no official name, so it was named "pigeon" by Search Engine Land. It uses the more traditional ranking factors for local search, as well as national. The new update has indeed been rolled out only to the US, and there is no official word on if and when it will be rolled out to other countries. More information, and links to other articles on this latest update, can be found in the Search Engine Land article, "Google “Pigeon” Updates Local Search Algorithm With Stronger Ties To Web Search Signal".

    Last I heard Matt Cutts was on vacation, and hadn't returned yet.

    Good response with great explanation. As you said this update will be rolled out to other countries also that is even better for small shop owners like best food points, training institutes, hotels and restaurants and resorts etc,



    Good
