MapQuest Partners with Citysearch for Comprehensive Search Results

In February, AOL announced a partnership with Citysearch to distribute its data across its network. Now, MapQuest has announced that it is integrating Citysearch’s data to provide more comprehensive search results. Features such as reviews, menus, and photos will be available for select listings.

When you conduct a search, if you see an gold icon with a star on it, that’s your clue to click for the new results. I was unable to find an icon after several searches, but here’s a screenshot from MapQuest:
