Google Maps Pins Testing Showing Review Snippets


Google Maps, the map interface, is testing displaying review snippets, short selected reviews, directly under the name of the business or organization in the map interface under the pin. This was spotted by Allie Margeson who said on Twitter “seeing review snippets get some prominence directly on the map and I like it!”

Personally, I am not a fan of this, it seems to really clutter up the map interface a lot to me…

Allie added “Another reason to get keywords in your reviews.”

Do you like it? Even if you don’t and Google launches this, you better have some really nice short review snippets that Google can select.

Google Dedicated Local Ad Pack

You can click “more places” that will load more local ads. Below that is the local pack map, showing you organic nearby stores that have that product nearby.

Here is a screenshot I took from a Twitter video from Saad AK:

I think this is new but I can be wrong?
