I think the secret for Grimmauld Place was that it was the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix, so I think it was more to stop people looking for the Order there than to hide the building. I think the Black family already had charms to hide it and stop people getting in or apparating out.

At Godric's Hollow, I think the secret was that the Potters were hiding in their house, because someone said people could look through their window and not see them. That would mean anyone could find the house but they wouldn't know the Potters were there.

When the charm broke, I don't know whether it restored what people knew before, or whether it just broke the enchantment that stopped the secret being passed on. Either way, I think someone would have to spread the news of the attack before anyone tried to find the Potters.
i think DD could still have known where the potters were. if he did he could have had others watching the house like mrs figg watched the dursleys. plus it seems godrics hollow may have been home to many who were magical. the news could have been sent to DD very quickly that something horrible happened at the potters.

it seems to me to make sense that the charm was on the potters themselves. when they were both dead, the charm was ended.
