We are seeing several ranking reports with positive upwards movement that seems to coincide with the recent core update. What's not clear to me is if the update had a direct impact on the local results, or if the impact is an indirect result of organic ranking increases due to the core update.
i've seen several cases where a business that has a larger distance from center (10+mi) is now ranking for keywords after the update they didn't rank for before. Not sure if they made a minor proximity tweak or if it was a tweak that better matched that business with the keyword. Need to do some more digging.
