Google Minion

Andrew Hagemann posted a screen shot on Twitter of Google showing a miniature or minimized version of a local pack. So instead of showing three local results, it shows a box that says you can click here to see three local results.

This test shows a map icon with a pin, that says 3 places nearby with an arrow to click on:

click for full size

This is what I see for this query, of course, I am not in the same location as Andrew:

Local Pack Google

I am not 100% sure if this is a new test or not, but I don't believe I've ever seen this one before.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
