Google Announces Search by Location

Sep 26, 2003

Google has released an experiment on Google Labs called Google Search by Location, which is designed to enable users to find information by geographic location. Someone searching for a sushi restaurant in a specific neighborhood, for example, can search for the word [sushi] and by entering a zip code or the name of their desired location, will be shown results for local sushi restaurants. Results are accompanied by a map highlighting the locations of top results. Clicking on highlighted locations connects users to the local Web page.
