Cordell Crowley posted in the Local Search Forums a screen shot of Google showing him the business locations you have access to in Google My Business but directly in the search results.

This is similar to Google Search Console showing your stats in the search results for relevant queries to that site profile but for Google My Business.

Here is a partial screen shot from Cordell:

Google My Business Places You Manage Search Results

He wrote:

When signed in to our agency account, we get a list of business listings that we manage whenever we do floral-related searches (all the listings in this account are for our florist clients). Have not seen this before until today.

Few things of note:
- The listings are not geographically specific- they seem to be from all over the place, even though our search is geo-specific.
- It doesn't really matter the keyword search. We get a list for each search that includes florists, flower shops, flowers, flower delivery, etc.
- The list is different each time.
- Our other agency we have that deals with a wide variety of business types does not have this list pull up for any searches. Towing, locksmiths, attorneys, etc. do not prompt a list like this even though that agency account has multiple listings for those business categories.

It's not a super useful feature honestly since we know which businesses we manage already, but I still always take notice whenever Google adds in something new.

Have you seen this yourself?
