Google local is bad news for the yellow pages.
Google local enables business owners to rank highly, and with a special entry, in local searches for their products and services.
The benefits of Google Local entries are many-fold:
- Google local entries are blended with regular results for most searches.
- Google local entries are always presented at the top of the natural search results.
- Google local entries are presented with a google map of the business or site location, which appears prominently, and helps your customers find you.
- Once you sign up, you’ll be included in Google’s 411 telephone directory (yes, Google will be taking over that too, soon).
- Google local entries are free!

As one can see, the Google local results are the most prominent entry on the page–even more prominent than the paid Google results.
