Google Local vs. Yahoo! Local

Martin Tobias points to Google’s beta of Google Local and gives his critique.

I agree with all of Martin’s criticisms.  Google Local isn’t ready for prime time yet.

My favorite implementation of local "search" is Yahoo! Local.

Here is a Yahoo! Local map of our office location with a graphic showing of all the nearby ATMs.  This is a really great service.

The one thing that’s missing from Yahoo! Local that Google Local does deliver is a simple search interface.

We’ll have to see if Yahoo! can get their front end right before Google gets their back end right.
