Google Local


Google Local is a new service that allows searchers to add a zip code or town to their search and find information on local businesses and maps. Results are integrated into regular search results, or you can use the Google Local interface.
An article from Pandia, a search engine newsletter which I believe is Norwegian, describes this in some detail. The service is going to be launched in the UK soon, says this article from Revolution Magazine.


I did a quick search of "Pizza" in my town, and found places listed that were long shuttered. I'm curious to know how they put this together. I do freelance work for site that puts together community websites--they use librarians to pull stuff together, and I feel like its a pretty decent source of community info.
