Google Serving Up Local Results

This is the first time I am seeing this for a keyword like "new york web design". Google is actually doing an unbelievable job! They are using the Yellow Page approach to the city + service keyword. This has been talked about and expected for a while. But I have never seen it for this keyword combination.

Update [9:02AM]: Did some looking around to verify this is a new thing that Google put out this morning. And it is.

Coverage at: SEO Chat WebmasterWorld Search Engine Watch Cre8asiteforums I am sure the other forums will cover it as well soon.

Another update: Wired writes Think Globally, Search Locally. We know whenever Wired covers Search, that its big news.
