Google Maps gains new layer of local results


Until today, when doing a search on Google Maps, only 10 results were printed on the maps at once. To correct this problem, Google Maps won today new layer of local results that activates whenever there are more revealing results than can be displayed on a single page.

In addition to the TOP 10 results, displayed with the standard Google Maps Pin, small circles reveal the existence of companies related to the search term. Just click on a circle or Pin to view more information about the business they represent. According to the company, the new functionality is only available for Google Maps in the U.S. but will be expanded to other locations in the future.
