Search Your Neighborhood With Google

Today, Google.com announced a new addition to its popular search service, Google Local.

This service allows you to limit search results to a geographic area. This can be especially useful when looking for businesses and services like dry cleaners, restaurants, etc.

I tested it out by looking for Italian Bakeries near me. St. Joseph's Day is on Friday and there is a traditional treat called Zepolle that is served on this day. Unfortunately, Google doesn't find the bakery where we normally purchase our Zepolle, Nicolosi Bakery on Ventura Blvd. in Tarzana. Most likely, this is because they have no presence on the web that I can find.
