  1. Great video. Wonderful examples. So the Newport Jail has been getting lots of the calls that should be going to the Newport Police Dept switchboard. Hmmph. That reminds me of the problem with the Duke University Hospital from so long ago.

    Between that example…the issues with Y Local and MSN Local….ugh…there are a lot of issues with Local. C’mon engines –take responsibility.

    As to the pictures coming out of Google Streetview….I gotta think…they are going to have to roll that back…way too intrusive.

    Thanks for the link.

  2. Very good video. I’m starting to get into local SEO and helping offline local businesses and this gives me a good idea of what I’m up against and why most local businesses haven’t considered Local search yet.

    As for Streetview, good thing I live in the sticks…

  3. Nice video. It’s good to see Danny from Search Engine Land in this video. Since Google Map launched I didn’t pay much attention on it. Recently I found that Google Map is very useful. I really enjoy using it.
