When you do a business name/city name search on Google, there’s a good chance you’re going to get a Local Onebox result returned with the business name, a link to its web site, and a map showing its location. But what about when the business has no web site? And also hasn’t claimed a listing in Google’s Local Business Center?
SBS reader Eric M. pointed me toward something I’ve not noticed before: Google is grabbing the business listing from Yelp or Citysearch, and quite likely from other sites when necessary. Here’s an example:
I think I’ve seen this before, although judging from the number of examples Eric shows on his blog, this may be happening more often as Google attempts to show local/map results more frequently on Google.com.
Any other readers have more to add?
