Yes. But what about the other things.I don't think so given their push to make Google Maps more of a local search engine. That 1bn user+ is no longer just a navigation platform. Sleeping giant in a lot of ways.
The traditional search results are also localized and increasingly the Map Pack show up under more and more keyword searches (GMB continues to expand the categories it supports).
What I posted was just an anecdote. I’m sure you’re not going to want to tell all the billions of people the proper search term.Search for "lettering removal service" instead.
That’s the entire point, Google can make it easier for all of those people.Searching is a skill and it's an underdeveloped skill in a lot of people.
Yes. This happens for many services especially if there no one in your local area who provide such a service. In this case, the search result can display "No business found in your area, the nearest one is xx kM away from you."Funny that you mentioned this. The other day I searched for "lettering removal" to find a local business who does this service but Google showed me articles that explained how to do it. I was thinking that there should be a "Local" button like there is for Images that would give me only GMB results.
What if someone only wants to see results from the local area. Is there any filtration currently? Search results will not only show business from the local area but their posts, blog posts, their offers, etc.Regular Google Search already does that. No need for a separate search interface or engine.
