Local Search

Definitions

(noun) Results of a search engine query that are geographically constrained, either due to user intent (a location was included in the query) or because local results were implied by the search query.

Example

“Local search is important, because if Bran lives in Dallas and searches for ‘trendy Italian restaurants,’ more than likely he wants to find nearby restaurants in Dallas, not Chicago.”

Alternate definition: The quickest method to find the best Tex Mex in town.
