Robert Charlton has asked me/given me permission to post the original non-blacked out screen shot of the SERP in question, unfortunately I deleted this BUT I fired up OPERA and did a few random searches of various trades and got lucky (strangely not in IE, Chrome or Firefox, just OPERA). See here.[img853.imageshack.us ] Search was for pain**ter and decora**tor AREA
As you can see you are presented with additional directories not provided in the SERP itself with the exception of yell still ranking at the top as expected across every local SERP I check. The rest of the page is made up of directories with one exception. So you could argue Google has included MORE directories? I donít see yelp or 118 normally returned in any other local SERP (that I watch anyway, only yell out of the 3 new links provided by Google).
When you click on the new directory links provided above places pack they take you to a search page within each site for the same search term as you would expect.
Hope this helps?!
Edit: its now showing up for all searches I make in OPERA so I guess here to stay? [img138.imageshack.us ] I find this SERP interesting, don't think another link is called for?
