When I do the classic Pizza search near my home, I get five pages of pizza shops, some out of state even, before the nearby shops show up. OK, so I live in MD near DC, but three of the top four listings are for pizza shops in VA, and the first page of results only have two that are even in MD. It seems to go through listings with "stars" before it'll settle down on really local listings. I have to go through four pages of seemingly randomized listings - all starred - before I get to the nearby pizza joints.
If I search on "gas station", I get listings for stations - some with stars, some without - all 2 to 10 miles away. There are at least 5 within 2 miles of me.
If I search on "movie theater", the second listing is 20 miles away. I have five multiplexes within five miles of my home address.
Is there any way to get it to just do a search sorted by distance? I'm pretty sure it used to work more like that.
I'm using the latest version, and have the street address, city, st in the address field rather than zip.
