Not all search results behave the same.  For many keywords search engines choose to show more local results than they would for other keywords.  Sometimes results a heavily tailored towards local in a way that makes it so only the Google + page local result will show up and the a regular result won’t show up.  Analyzing these results help us determine how to engage each market and geo-targeted Arabic keyword differently.
