Pegman Google MapsWhen Google launched the new Google Maps the search nearby functionality got harder to use. That has now changed, Google brought back the quick link to search nearby within Google Maps.

Now, when you browse or search Google Maps for a specific area, Google will return a link to "search nearby" and clicking it will give you the ability to search for a specific keyword nearby that location. So parking, pizza, gas and so on.
