In case you’re one of the few people that hasn’t heard yet, Google has added more local results in the web search results.
LookLocal’s integration of all 3 major mapping providers is nice but will they please eliminate the popup message for Macs (or at least cookie the mac user so they don’t keep getting the same popup)!
If you stumbled along this blog and aren’t aware of local search and what it means to you, here is a primer…you probably also want to read about local search SEO.
Mapperz points out that Google Books has added mapping to their books (they plot places mentioned in a book onto a map).
Microsoft’s purchase of Vexcel is making its way into Live Local Search but the 3D rendering requires a downloaded plugin for IE 6 or 7. Boooo!
