Yahoo has changed its interface by adding local business information alongside search results, which make it look a lot like Google's local search results.

The information in the local business includes:

  • Basic business information
  • Photos
  • Hours of operation
  • Data specific to business types. For example, restaurant links may show "Reservation" and "Menu" links.

Yahoo in the announcement said that "idea is to make it easier to get the essential facts for any business in the U.S. right on the search results page".

The business data will not show until one clicks on one of the business listings in local results.

Here are the screenshots of the Yahoo local search result page before & after clicking.
