Has Google killed off the 'workaround' Google Places search, where you can see if a listing might be penalised or not? +Gene Maryushenko introduced it to me in my recent Hot Seat thread, and I've also seen it talked about on +Linda Buquet's forum.

For the search https://www.google.com/search?q=opticians+cardiff&num=100&as_qdr=&tbm=plcs, I used to be able to see a long list of Places-only listings, but today I get this message: "Your search - opticians cardiff - could not be completed with the requested search options. Reset search tools" - the "Reset search tools" link takes you to a normal (mixed) search. So I'm wondering if Google have 'patched this hole'?

Is it still working for anyone else?
