New Google Local-Search Launched for Mobile.

Posted on 01. Oct, 2009 by in All Local Search Posts, Maps, Mobile

Yesterday, Google announced “a redesigned local search experience on your phone that integrates with Google Maps on your computer and includes browseable categories that let you search without typing”. 

I’ve got an iPhone, and I’ll say that Google Maps is one of my single favorite mobile search tools – my only complaint is that like most other search engines, it still does not offer a a complete, accurate list of all businesses (like an IYP). I suspect that’s due to Google’s reliance on businesses proactively adding or claiming their local business listings.

Here’s more information on Google’s announcement:
