Google Local Canada is Now Online

Yellow Pages dials onto Google Canada
Source: Canadian Press

Google has just launched another local search product, this time in Canada. The database includes more than 2.4 million listings from a partnerhsip with Canada’s Yellow Pages Group.

I haven’t had much time to test out Google Local-Canada but after few (very few) quick searches some of the same types of problems that I pointed out in this recent post about Google Local-U.S. also occur at Google Local-Canada.

If you’re keeping score:
Google Local: U.S. and Canada
Yahoo Local: U.S. and Australia

Postscript: ClickZ also has a write-up here now: Google Gets Local in Canada
