Google Local

Close on the heels of Yahoo’s entry in the local search market comes the news about the launch of Google Local.

To deliver the results, Google draws on business listings provided by third-party companies. It also uses technology to collect and analyze data on the physical location of a Web page and then matches that data to specified queries and their designated addresses.

For now, Google will not display local advertisements on the service, but it plans to do so in the future.
