When search gets it wrong
I just did a search for 'Seattle Locksmith' and all I see is ADS + PLACES above the fold with a map on the side and more ads under that. If that's what I wanted I would have picked up the yellow pages or gone to the yellow pages website. What I wanted to see was WEBSITES about Seattle locksmiths, not anything else Google showed me.
Google isn't the only search engine guilty of #*$!ty results however, all of them seem to think they need to spice up their results with features, like places etc, but in reality they just need to serve the spaghetti and let the user apply those spices on an OPTIONAL basis.
It's getting worse, not better.
