Doing some searches today and I'm coming across one-boxes where there shouldn't be a one-box. Here's one example, searching for "allstate midland tx", which is a city with plenty of Allstate agents, returns a one-box. I've seen a similar result in other cities for similar brands. Anyone else seeing funky one-box stuff?

Thanks Colan!

Have you started analyzing why Google thinks those that scored the 1 box are special?
