Google Maps

One more time to talk about Google. This time, this is on their supremacy in providing detailed accurate search across US.

Google maps is a system thru which you can go deep down on any locations in US. Although A9's Yellow Pages is doing a commendable job in getting photos of the desired location, Google maps provides you detailed street location and address finding. Before this, even for their location specific AdWords program Google utilised Mapquest to find the exact latitude. Now with this, mapquest's usage inside Google will slowly reduce. This is presently available only for US.

Thanks, atlast, i have an excuse for not optimising my office location, still will be available thru Google maps.
