Microsoft's Bing search engine tied up Thursday with the
business review firm Yelp to power local search.
Yelp's review snippets, photos, business attributes and
more will be integrated into Bing's new local business
pages for relevant categories, making it easier to
discover a new or notable establishment nearby.
The announcement comes after Google said it was adding
local restaurant reviews from Zagat in a revamped local
search feature and Apple unveiled its own mapping
service that can perform similar functions.
The services are used by mobile and computer users
seeking local restaurants, hotels or other services.
