Google Local Trailing New Format For Metro Searches [Screenshots]

November 4, 2010 § Leave a comment

Many business owners are now familiar with Google’s Local Search function. If you conduct a Google Search for a service (e.g. plumber, hotel, chinese restaurant, etc) and use a geographic modifier (technical term for a location e.g. Byron Bay or Brisbane), so something like “Plumber Byron Bay”, Google serves up a page with a map and 7 featured listings.

Naturally if you have a business that services a local market e.g. trades, health professionals, business services being discovered in the featured list has a significant advantage. Also optimising your listing by adding videos and other details is a great way to connect with prospects.

However it appears that Google is testing new formats for serving up these Google Local Searches. To see screenshots of the new format go to http://byronnewmedia.com/social-media-strategy/google-local-trailing-new-form…
