Google SGE Drops Local Results (5 Local Pack)

Robot Edward Scissorhands Google Emblem

When Google launched its Search Generative Experience, the AI-powered answer embedded native results from Google Replace Profiles in a local pack. In actuality, it became a “five pack” but now, Google is no longer any longer showing the native pack at all – no longer less than on the time I wrote this yarn.

Here is a screenshot from a tweet I posted above this wait on then:

Fact is, this native pack became redundant to what Google showed without prolong below the AI-powered answer. Google would screen a “three pack” within the predominant ragged search results, and it could robotically be redundant to what became confirmed within the AI-SGE answer.

Now, when I build identical queries, it no longer reveals native pack results fro Google Replace Profiles within the AI-powered answer.

This became first spotted by Andy Simpson who posted this on X:

Yep, I will no longer trigger native packs within the AI-powered answer within Google SGE.

Once I first build the question, it now asks me if I need an AI answer but lawful below that is the ragged native pack. Here is a screenshot, click to magnify it:

Then if I generate it, Google SGE does no longer consist of the native pack, respect it did, within the AI-answer:

click for corpulent dimension

I mediate this makes sense, Google does no longer resolve on to screen it twice within the quest results. So I put no longer mediate here’s a laptop virus, but I mediate here’s Google testing SGE interfaces to ask what works best for native-intent queries.
