By using Google’s new service, you can easily limit your searches to a particular location. This Tech-Recipes tutorial explains how.
Most of the time when I search the Web, I just want information from any available source. Sometimes, however, I want to know information regarding a particular area.
For example, sending flowers to my mother 12 hours away can be difficult. Do I spend a dollar calling directory information and request that they just connect me to any florist nearby?
Now, Google makes this easy by allowing one to limit his or her searches by location: http://local.google.com/
For example, by using local.google.com, I can search for “flowers” and “44505” and find several florists in Youngstown, OH.
