Today, Google officially launched Google Local, a search feature designed to make local searches easier. Users can type in a search term followed by a city name or go to local.google.com and perform the search there. Last week, Yahoo launched a local search feature through its Yahoo Maps application, allowing users to drill down locally to restaurants and other local destinations. While not available right now, Google has plans to offer local advertising on the new service. CNET reports. [MarketingWonk]
