google-maps-store-listingsWe have seen changes made to Google Maps from time to time, and most of the time, such changes are more than welcome. At the moment, those of us who simply are unable to live without Google Maps in our everyday life, already depend on a slew of information concerning nearby stores whenever one is hunting down a particular store, but advertisements themselves, one of Google’s “bread and butter”, so to speak, has not gotten the kind of treatment that Google wanted them to have – until now, that is.

It is a start for sure, and whether this start will head down in the right direction or not remains to be seen. What we do know is, Maps on mobile as well as on the web does display a slew of details for relevant store ads, where those will also comprise of links to call those shops. It might help users learn more concerning the various interesting ads which could eventually result in a sale, but it is a double edged sword in itself as the importance of the actual search results might be overlooked.

How do you like the new look Google Maps especially with more informative ads as you hunt down a particular food joint?
