Google history mystery:
- Nov 2016, desktop search clicks to http://maps.google.com decline
- Aug 2017, desktop search clicks to the TBM=LCL parameter rise
Where was GG sending maps clicks in the meantime?!
(prelim data via @jumpshotinc, but please don't quote/use yet)
Note this is *desktop only*, so it's not going to the Google Maps app. And whatever it is may have started to draw maps traffic/clicks in May 2016 (it may even still be earning some maps/local clicks today)
Maybe solved! @JoyanneHawkins reminded me that in those years, Google sent a ton of local clicks to Google+ profiles!
