New Google Places Search

Ask Google Where to Go With New Place Search

There's no shortage of city-specific guides and recommendation sites — Yelp, Citysearch, and the like have made themselves essential for any traveler or citizen looking for a place to go. Now Google is jumping further into the ring with the launch of location-based Place Search.

How does it work? If you're looking for a certain type of restaurant within a mile radius of your current location, Place Search would return all of those results with lots of detailed and relevant info.

Find out more about this new function after the break.

Search results are marked on a map with the familiar red Google pins so you can see exactly where each place is, and links beneath each location result span the web to include sites like Yelp, Citysearch, and other editorial content — not just Google sites. Place Search will appear automatically in your search results when Google predicts you're looking for a location. And if Google fails to predict that you're looking for a place, there is also a Places link on the left side of the page that you can use to further refine the results.

Places will be rolling out over the next several days, but you can check it out for yourself with this preview link.
