So now that the rules are changed for SABs, let's talk about what it will mean for local ranking in 3-packs and local finder results.

Hypothetical: in a search for which two companies are equally great locations for inclusion / ranking in the 3-pack, but one of them is listed with a physical address near the searcher and one is an SAB whose service area includes the searcher's location, which one will be listed before the other? And why?

Google is still showing the nearest business. But can't wait to see the impacts in the next couple of weeks.

Yeah so far I have not seen any ranking changes so it still seems to not factor in the service area at all.

It was a suggestion that these types of questions require testing to come up with a conclusion.
