A Beautiful Day in Your Neighborhood

By Anand Chandrasekaran, Senior Director, Product Management

We’ve updated Yahoo Search to make it easier to get the essential facts for any business in the U.S. right on the search results page.

When it comes to searching for local content, we know you want to take action. If you’re checking out a restaurant, you want to peruse the menu, see if it’s open, and maybe make a reservation. If you’re looking for a new dentist, you want to know whether the office near you is accepting new patients, and if they take your insurance.

Whether you’re searching for the nearest open restaurant or your local coffee shop, you’ll see a snapshot of the business alongside our refreshed Yahoo Maps experience - information like a company overview, photos, hours of operation, parking availability and more. With a noticeably larger map that stays put on the sidebar, it’s easier to find the location closest to you.

Whatever you’re looking for in your neighborhood, this is another step towards a faster, more beautiful search experience from Yahoo.
