Now on the home page.

Google blog:

There's been such great demand for Local search results that we've added a Local link on the Google homepage so you can find nearby businesses around the U.S. and Canada even faster than before.

Hmmmm... have they tweaked their Local Search lately?

I'm seeing very good results, not great, but very good.

That said, even having the link on the home page is still going to take some user education.

I really think this will hurt them more then help. GL is not ready for prime time. If people get a bad first impression of GL they may never try again. IMHO, YL has GL beat hands down so far.
