Google has announced the arrival of Place Search, a new kind of results service that organises information around locations.
It combines data about local businesses relevant to an internet user's search query with links to relevant reviews.
Jackie Bavaro, product manager at Google, said that Place Search will make it simpler for users to get a comprehensive view in their results, with up to 30 or 40 links included on a single search page.
"Instead of doing eight or ten searches, often you'll get to the sites you're looking for with just one search," the official stated.
The service is to be rolled out across the world in the next few days and will be initially available in around 40 different languages.
Earlier this week, Search Engine Watch commentator John Greer advised companies using SEO services to make sure they have keywords in their URLs and page titles as this will affect their search engine ranking on the likes of Google and Bing.
