Google Pushing Local Search?

by Stephen Pitts on May 8, 2008

Today while doing research for a client, I happened to notice something very interesting in Google’s results.

Google Pushes Local Search in SEPRs

The given search was for “hampton inn” and further research on other geographically relevant, broad terms returned similar results like “restaurant” and “mcdonalds.”

Entering a city, state or zip code returned the Google map and relevant results based on the given entry. This did not appear differently if you are logged into a Google account or not.

Has anyone else seen this?
