Thanks to Clint from ThinkSEM for pointing this out to me – Google is showing (at least today) up to ten local listings within their natural results. I’ll use the standard “pizza” local search, but it applies across many industries.
I’m not affiliated with them at all, but there’s a reason that Pizza Luce is circled. Here they are again in the sponsored results.
And… in the natural results – once for their own site and once by piggy-backing on CitySearch.
All of this on just one Google page. Talk about a lot of real estate. This could be a good opportunity for interested folks to check out the local search post regarding going back to the basics.
