Google Rolls Out Google + Local with Zagat ScoresGoogle is adding Zagat scores to its local search. The company has launched Google + Local, a new way to search and share local information featuring Zagat scores and information from people you know in Google +.
Using the new "Local" located on the left-hand side of Google +, users can now search for specific locations or browse various options. If they select a place, such as a restaurant or museum, they will be taken to a local Google + place that features photographs, Zagat scores, and reviews from people within your social network. Users will also find other information such as store hours and address.
Zagat joined the Google team last fall and brings to the table more than three decades of scores, reviews, and summaries based on user-written submissions and surveys.
