This may not be new but i'm seeing a lot of attempts at returning local results mixed in with the serps this morning. i've seen them on the top before and with maps but never mixed in with the regular serps. I say attempts because the results don't seem very good. For example, i do a search for "keyword" and in the top 10 results i see a blog post about how "little johnny took his keyword to las vegas". not really what i was looking for especially since the keyword was definitely not local specific!
