Okay, unsurprisingly I'm a big user of Google Maps for local but I've just spotted something that I have never noticed before, the "Nearby" option in the blue sidebar.

Is it me or is this option new?

I've always used the "Search This Area" option previously, but it doesn't always immediately appear.

New or otherwise, it's just made my local competitive research a whole lot easier!

Hey Andy,

Thanks for sharing. Not new, but it sure is useful like you suggested :)

Thanks Joy, yeah, I thought it might not be new, I just hadn't spotted it in the past (for whatever reason, I blame blind male syndrome?)

But a nice find to start the week!
