Google in Your Area
Tuesday, Sep 23, 2003
Yesterday Google Labs released Google Search By Location, which lets you specify search terms and a city/state/zip for location-specific results.It's gotten so much attention in the last 12 hours that it appears to be slashdotted, or at least sluggish. Anyhow, give it a try. It's pretty nifty. Unlike Yahoo Yellow Pages, it's gathering all its global contextual awareness from the web, not telephone book feeds.

It makes for a fuzzier experience, but one that can lead to discoveries a yellow pages search would never yield.

If you like it, please share it.
