Interesting map design
Slightly off topic - but I also found it interesting that for myself, the only way I can get Yelp or similar sites like those shown in the new map page, is to use queries they have shown on that image grab.
Their reference to davis square, or even the city of somerville spawn the "Yelp on Top, #1" each time, but when you replace it for other towns or cities, Yelp (Or anyone other than Google maps)is nowhere to be found.
This is CLEARLY a manually cooked search results page to my eyes. Based on their PSA post, they are propping Yelp... but in the real world, Yelp is buried, along with anything other than Google properties.
bars in somerville - Yelp on top
bars in davis square - Yelp on top
bars in [anywhere else I checked] Yelp not even on the pages!
