It’s called the “carousel”.  It’s a brand new search result layout that Google has implemented for some local business categories such as hotels, restaurants and bars.  Do a local Google search for one of these categories and you’ll now see an interactive list of results on the top of the page (even above the ads).  Check out an example below:

This new layout has big marketing implications for small business owners as we predict that even more business verticals will be added to this format in the coming months. If you’re an owner of a restaurant, hotel or bar, and would like to discuss how to optimize your online strategy to take advantage of this new “carousel” layout please give us a call at 866-234-7170 or contact us online at [email protected]
