Google+ Local results in Google-SERPs drops review lightbox
Until yesterday a click on a review link on a Google+ Local result in the main Google SERPs would open a lightbox without taking the user to another URL. This has changed now: Clicking on review links on a Google+ Local result in the main Google SERPs now opens the Google+ Local page URL.
In cases where you have a reviews link and a seperate Google+ page link now both links take you to the Google+ Local page URL.
Thanks for tagging me +Nicolai Helling I need to check my notification settings cuz never got a ping. Just saw Mike's new post and followed the link here. Anyway good catch. Seems like more changes are coming!
As mentioned by +Mike Blumenthal in his post yesterday, I'm seeing it for local search terms in the UK but not for branded searches - those are still going to the light box for me. So 'keyword in town' takes me through to the g+ page but 'name of business in town' produces the lightbox.
